I visit this monastery in the same trip I visited Peles castle. It has a beautiful architecture. It's a nice place if you're looking silence and a very beautiful view.
Sinaia Monastery is a beautiful look back into both history and the present. It is a pleasant experience wandering through the monastic grounds and getting lost in the artwork throughout the buildings. It also represents a wonderful example of inspiration from another source, such as the monastery on Mount Sinai. It's a perfect place to visit if you're in the area.
If you are stopping in Sinaia to see Peles Castle, I would most definitely make the time to see the Sinaia Monastery. Ideally, you could see the monastery first and then walk up the tree-lined path to Peles Castle, while shopping in the Romanian stalls along the way.
I visited the monastery while my visit in Peles Pallace and i was impressed by the architecture and the history.If you are clode by in the area you must pay a visit!
The architecture of this monastery is impressive and visiting this location in winter and snow all round makes it even more beautiful.
Its impossible to think of the monastery as anything else but a living breathing community. The monks were praying, cleaning, tending the garden and discussing repairs to outbuildings when we were there. lf It has as a beautiful church, built just outside an idyllic cloisters. But the old smaller church within the cloisters steals the show in terms of its simple beauty created as a place of worship to God. Check it out, and light a candle while you are there
The view surrounding the monastery was just enchanting. The painting on the walls and ceiling were just so captivating.
The monastery has an older part, which dates from the early 1600. It has several amazing fresco's. I found these very curious and interesting because they are not really religious. The new building is a "real" monastery, built in roman style and very nice decorated. Worth to see as it is situated very close to the city center and a walk to the monastery is a relaxing activity. The nature around is also just beautiful.
We ambled about the monastery in the rain. There's a ticket booth at the entrance with an advertised entry of 5 lei, but it was unmanned, and no-one seemed to want to take our money. Its worth reading up on the place before you go as there also wasn't much on-site info available.Both the old and the new churches are very beautiful, and typically ornate inside.Definitely worth popping in when you're in Sinaia
The church itself is beautiful and picturesque.Orthodox monastery some hundreds of years old which is situated in a scenic mountain view
