Sinaia-Monastery

The cathedral of the Carpathians

Sinaia Monastery, also called the cathedral of Bucegi Mountains, is the first construction in the area of the present resort, being built at the end of the 17th century by spatar Mihail Cantacuzino, after his return from the Sinai Mountain. This is where the name of the monastery came from, name taken by the town as well.

The museum of Sinaia Monastery, built in 1895 on the occasion of the monastery’s bicentenary, is the first religious museum in the country and shelters invaluable worship objects, the first Bible translated in Romanian and printed at Bucharest (in 1688, with the good will of ruler Serban Cantacuzino) and a gorgeous collection of icons.
