The Unmissables

Here you can enjoy the sunrise at 1634 meters altitude. The legend says, the wife of our ruler from the sixteenth century, Petru Rares, would look over the horizon to see if her husband is heading towards her place of hiding. The reservation spreads over 933 ha, including  Pestera Liliecilor (The Cave of bats) and Piatra Soimului (The hawk’s rock) where you can enjoy a breathtakingly beautiful view. From this rock you will also be able to admire Mount Giumalau, which has an altitude of 1641 meters and has an astounding, calm appearance of a resting volcano.


The monastery was built 500 years ago. Here is the place where our famous monk, Daniil Sihastrul, spent his last 26 years of life. All the pigments are derived from natural, mineral substances, and survived remarkably in some very harsh climatic conditions. Also called “The Sistine Chapel of East Europe” for “The Last Judgement” fresco painted with the famous pigment “Voronet blue”, the monastery is an UNESCO monument.
