Romania, our neighbor, is still largely underrated in terms of tourism. In reality, it's very much worth attention: there are numerous incredibly beautiful monasteries, temples, castles; the nature is also exceptionally beautiful, as almost half of the Carpathian mountain range is located in Romania.

We offer you to spend 3 days in Romania, where we'll visit monasteries closer to our border. But not only that... Cultural landmarks won't escape our attention either. We invite those interested in monasteries, which are architectural gems with paintings that draw their tradition from Greek and Bulgarian Christian heritage, to join this pilgrimage. One specific feature of Romanian temples is that they are always beautifully decorated, and often painted not only inside but also outside.
