I am not a believer or something, but this is the most beautiful monastery ever visited. The landscape is amazing, the complex is airy, and the monks do a very good job, maintaining that beauty.

We visited the Caraiman monastery twice. The monastery stands tall against the Bucegi Mountains and its history is breath taking. The souvenir shop is full of orthodox religious artefacts, books and talismans.
