booked a private tour with Axa Travel, fabulous and thoroughly worth the cost. I learnt so much, could go at my own pace, take as many photos as I liked

The Blue Monastery at Voronet is so beautiful! The history, frescoes, carvings, furnishings all inspire wonder and awe. Such an amazing place. Why it is not as famous as the Blue Mosque of Istanbul is beyond me. I have spent hours "reading" Church history via the paintings and am still in awe of the place long after returning home. I cannot recall if there is a fee or if it donation, but even if a fee is required, it is certainly worth it!

Painted inside and out, it is a must in Romania. There is a nice hike starting at the road leaving from Gula Humorului. Try to get early in the morning to skip the buses of tourists and you'll have some time alone.

There is a fee to take pictures outside while it is forbidden to do so inside.
