An alternative to see while in Sinaia Mar 13, 2017
We entered very late, opening hour in summer month is from 10-18h there is normally entrance fee of 5 lei, but the counter is closed already and we see other people going inside, so we followed them. The gate is still open we were there before six, so we have a few minutes to stroll around

Within the walls of the monastery are two churches, once passing the entrance I caught my sight to the great church of Sinaia Monastery- built in the Byzantine style, it had beautiful paintings in gold mosaic. The old church stood opposite to it which much smaller, but this is closed

We strolled around the monastery we can only admire outside, the only open to visit is the church, but we're satisfy we can see see around.

Religion As An Attraction May 10, 2013
This was a beautiful monastery with two churches on site (an old out of use one and the new one). I was amazed to hear that this is still a working monastery and when we entered the newer church we were in time to see the service so actually got to see the monks at work. It was a little odd oggling at people who were clearly mid-worship and I felt a little out of place but at the same time it fascinated me because monasteries are lost in the UK and I've never properly seen them before. The buildings themselves were stunning and the old church has some breath-taking frescos lining the walls and ceiling.

I payed a small fee (about 6 lei) to get inside but I think this was only because of the service being held. It was very worth it, even to just have a brief look around. The toilet facilties weren't brilliant but useable and there is also a little gift/information shop as well.
