Sightseeing in Romania

Monastery
“Located on the top of Cetăţuia Hill of the old Moldavian capital, the monastery was built by Prince Gheorghe Duca in the 17th century.[2] The monastery is surrounded by fortifications with towers on the corners, and it provided refuge during enemy siege or full-scale invasions. The name itself Cetăţuia means citadel or fortress in Romanian. The uniqueness of Cetățuia Monastery consists in the fact that the entire ensemble of monastic architecture has been preserved. In addition there is also a gothic hall, a museum of medieval art, a tower called “Pilgrim’s Dinner” from where one can admire the panorama of Iași and its famous wine cellars with wine obtained from its own vineyard.”

Castle
“According to the opinion of some of the specialists who studied, the city of Oratea was built at the beginning of the 13th century, presumably in 1212, by the Teutonic Cavalier, at the request of King Andrew II of Hungary, as an outpost of the defense system The Barsa country. Currently, the old fortification is ruined. Only a few portions of walls have been preserved, the fortress being in an advanced state of degradation and invaded by vegetation. Among the specialists who were assigned to the Teutonic Knights the building of the fortress is I. Puşcariu, A. Lapedatu and Gustav Treiber. Treiber relies on this technical construction hypothesis, characteristic of the tower that is open.”

“Great panoramic view over Brasov. The citadel it's also very nice, unfortunately it's not opened to the public anymore as it is owned by humans with no respect for history.”
