Prislop Monastery

It was built in the style of the monasteries in Wallachia.

Although it is located in Transylvania, Prislop Monastery was built in Wallachian style. How come?

The story goes that Princess Zamfira, the daughter of a Wallachian voivode, being seriously ill, came to the monastery, drank from the water of a spring and recovered her health. As a sign of gratitude, she had the monastery rebuilt and lived here for the rest of her life.

Later on, the one who brought fame to the monastery was Arsenie Boca, the Wise Father. It is said that people from all the corners of the country sought him for advice and to listen to his teachings. Even today many believers come to the monastery to pray at his grave.
