If you have some extra time while driving through Romania I would recommend a visit here. The paintings and frescos are absolutely beautiful. The area is quaint and worth stopping for lunch. No issue recommending a visit.

Nice area, the monastery itself is pure history. The paintings in walls and ceilings are really beautiful and well conserved. Good for a break and to see something different.

Built in the 14th century, this monastery is still an active place of worship. We stopped by on a Sunday morning and observed the service. Wonderful to hear the space filled with song and prayer.
