At Sinaia Monastery, see two gold-plated thrones bearing the royal emblem, carved wooden furniture, and frescoes from the 17th and 19th centuries. Mihail Cantacuzino, a Wallachian military leader, built the monastery upon his return from Mount Sinai in the last decade of the 17th century. The 19th-century church with the bell tower houses paintings depicting Queen Elisabeth with her daughter Mary. Notice the friezes adorning the walls of the old church and the painting of the founder with his 18 children on the back wall. A small history museum exhibits the first Romanian translation of Bible written in the Cyrillic alphabet. The 1920s prime minister Take Ionescu is buried here, and the stone interior walls of the mausoleum are carved with quotations from his speeches.

If you visit Sinaia, this is one of the places you need to visit for sure. The monastery has two parts - old and new. It has an interesting story. It is located near a forest, so it's not so hot during the summer. The icons are good. It's located just 10-15 minutes by foot from the Sinaia center.
A really amazing Old Church smells like flowers... Theyre everywhere! very clean just one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen
