As a religion-spirituality enthusiast I'm still wondering about all those symbols and how crowded everything felt - from Christian crosses to Egyptian symbols, to pagan carvings into the furniture. Really interesting story. Take a tour.

A good thing is that they have audio guides. On Thursdays free entrace and audio guide. Strange prices: usually in Romania nobody uses monetary divisions, except maybe for 1/2 leu (50 bani). Here they ask for 110,08 or something .13 or .58 or .62... Incredible....More

The place is interesting to visit especially if you are interested and history, biographies and the story of a father that could never recover after his daughters death. Audio guide is included in the entry fee.
