Enjoy one of the oldest city in Romania -the Royal city of the Romanian kings
The story of the most beautiful monastery in Europe has at his base a sacrifice - the legend claims! A dream of perfection and beauty born of love and determination. Beyond legends, the true story of this religious masterpiece finds its roots in a friendship between a King, Neagoe Basarab, and an Armenian foreman. This is a place where kings found their eternal rest: King Carol I of Romania, Queen Elisabeth - his wife, King Ferdinand and his wife Marie and King Carol II, beginning August 2016, Queen Ana and beginning December 2017, the last King of Romania, Michael I.
Find out where some Templer knights found their love or where the Black King died to defend Christianity. Come and experience the sound of time passing through, or delight your sight with unique stone carvings and mural paintings. You may then feel the taste of Romanian foods with flavors you may remember in years to come. You deserve a break - make it memorable!
