It's a very spiritual place. You can visit there the cave where Saint Andrewsl lived. He is the one who brought Cristianity on the Romanian territory. It's a must see. You have to baptise your kids here. It's a space of high spiritual. If my problems are starting to effect me I come here and relax it's very peace full.

St. Andrew’s Cave and Monastery has a spiritual and historical significance related to St. Andrew The Apostle, who blessed by his presence this ancestral land between the Danube and the Black Sea, becoming patron of Dobrogea and Romania. Unfortunately, during the Communist regime, dark clouds have lingered over this holy place, leading to its dissolution. In 1990, after the Revolution,... More

St Andrew brought the Christianity onto this land, and this was the cave in which is supposed he lived. A space if high spirituality, with quiet and beautiful surroundings.

St. Andrew is the one who brought Christianity to this land. I had the opportunity to visit the cave where he lived on a scorching day of July. Upon entering the cave, the silence and low temperature inside felt like a balm. I took my time to look at the icons on the walls, to caress the rocks that have... More

The monastery itself isn't extremely spectacular apart from the fact that it's located in a cave. It is said that the remains of St. Andrew himself are inside and that they have healing powers for whoever prays there. I'm not that big of a believer, but what I do believe in is the beauty of the nature surrounding this attraction.... More

My review has nothing to do with faith and religious beliefs; these are private to each one of us. It is my opinion about the Saint Andrew's complex: the two churches and the Cave Monastery. The cave is taking you back in time and although illuminated and decorated, you can imagine how it used to be for somebody to live... More

The Saint Andrew's Cave is a place where the Apostle lived in Dobruja. There is a church inside the cave and a bigger one outside (where are exposed some Saint's holy relics). The place is very spiritual and isolated and the road to get there is pitoresque. To get there you should enter Ion Corvin village and then you can... More
