Its a cute orthodox church, with a patio... Its really small, but full of details... It worth a visit if you are near, but I wouldn't cross the city just to visit it...

Very beautiful, worth visiting. The decorations are amazing. And why not having a dinner at the restaurant right across the street? Be sure you book in advance though.

An old site, full with history, it's definitely a place one must visit. It is run by nuns, the country yard looks very nice and also some historical relics. Pay your tribute to God in the church then have a moment of peace and quietnes in the court, and afterwords you can continue your old city center tour.

A pretty-as-a-picture - or should that be icon? - church still run by monks. Gloriously Orthodox bells, smells and painitngs in side.Well worth a visit.

It is nice, clean, old, historical, but perhaps it is best to combine it with a visit of the Olt Town, otherwise just for itself, it is not a lot to see to spend too much time.

I managed to be there on the New Year Day when the church was closed so without seeing its interior my comments are partial. The look of this building is very new in terms of the degree of maintenance and care and old in terms of age. It is so well preserved that most visitors were tempted to either take... More
