Beautifully arranged monastery. A nice place to stay for an hour and rest a bit, in the summer. The church has the typical dark painting inside, and is with to see.

This is a beautiful, peaceful place with white walls and a lovely church. It doesn't entail too mich walking. I've seen a lot of monasteries but this one is especially worth seeing. It is quite photogenic.

Visited this pretty monastery in the late afternoon. I love visiting monasteries in Romania. Monastery Horezu has been renovated, but you still can see the old interior, the paintings and the icons inside the small church. Beautiful landscape around the small beautiful church.

It's a nice place to visit if you're nearby. colourful paintings inside the church and some bones of monarchy people. You don't have to pay anything if you don't want to. There are very beautyful flowers and a nice garden.

Beautiful and quiet monastery, lovely architecture. You can enter with your car up to the top of the path. The place is very beautiful and welcoming! Would also recommend Manastirea Icoanei!
