We visit between 7:00 and 8:00 PM, walked around the monastery and surroundings. The door was closed when we did visit. The strange towers did give the monastery a special look. It is free of charge. At the entrance there was souvenirs shop. Twenty minutes will be enough.
The Curtea de Arges Monastery is a real gem, you can sit and watch the embroidery of the church for a long time. Even inside all the elements are so special and it makes you wonder how they are still in good shape after hundreds of years.. You must see this!!
Interesting site and church with interesting architecture. Nice grounds with gardens - very peaceful.
A relaxing place where Eastern European history can be learnt by teen-agers. Beggars should not be let inside.
A beautiful place, filled with Romanian history, where the kings and queens are buried. It also is the central theme for a famous Romanian ballad, Mesterul Manole.
