Monasteries


Durau Monastery

It is a 17th century foundation. Outstanding by its wax paintings, done by Nicolae Tonitza between 1936-1937, assisted by Corneliu Baba, among his students.

Bistrita Monastery

Only 10 km away from Piatra Neamt there is Alexandru the Good and Stefan the Great’s foundation (also the first one’s grave). The original building is gone, but the one Alexandru Lapusneanu replaced it with, in 1554, still stands. The Monastery plays an important cultural part because it is here that the first Moldavian Chronicle was written. More, it holds a valuable feudal art museum.

Agapia Monastery

Agapia Monastery stands in a very beautiful landscape, on the valley of Toplita. It holds a famous painting collection by Nicolae Grigorescu, gospels, precious metal worship antiques, golden and silvered embroidery, and also the Alexandru Vlahuta Memorial Gallery, with various manuscripts and documents abaout the writer’s life and work.

Varatec Monastery

It stands 12 km away from Targu Neamt and holds Saint Ana’s Icon, which is dragged out during the prayers for raining, on droughts. It also holds the poetess Veronica Micle’s grave. The Monastery has a large, artistic and historic collection of icons, manuscripts, robes, tapestry and worship antiques.

Secu Monastery

Standing on the above-mentioned river valley, it was founded by the Minister of Intrenal Affairs Nestor Ureche (father of annalist Grigore Ureche) on the site of an ex-wooden hermitage. The interior painting, renaissance style, stands from 1850. Outside the monastery is Bishop Varlaam’s grave, who printed out, at Iasi in 1643, the first romanian written book, Cazania, also known as Romanian Learning Book.

Sihastria Monastery

It stands 20 km away from Tg Neamt, in a sub-carpathian basin. Tall walls were built, on four sides, simultaneously with the monastery, including two towers: one holding the belfry and one above the main gate. So, the hermitage looks like a fortified monastery.

Sihla Hermitage

South-west of Sihastria, over high peaks, there is the Sihla Mountain (900-1000 m), with very beautiful paths. Here, on a small plateau, stands the Sihla Hermitage. In front of it there are gigantic rock walls, holding a cave where, according to old legends, a girl named Saint Teodora by the folks lived for 60 years, it’s reliquary being kept today at the Pecerska Monastery in Kiev, under the name of Pious Teodora of the Carpathians.

Museums



Tarpesti Museum

In Tarpesti village (Petricani parish) lives the folk artist Nicolae Popa - authentic folk art collector. Being a mask designer, he stands among the elite of romanian naďve art creators and has become famous all across Europe. In 1998 Nicolae Popa published “Village Universe, forgotten traditions and habits - the formerly Tarpesti”, a monograph of the village, a presentation of different and various important customs in folks’ life (evening sittings of village women, hayracks, parties, games, in ordinary or holy days).

Neamt Fortress

Founded in the north-est part of the Neamt district, 46 km away from its residence, and very close to Tirgu Neamt, the Neamt Fortress is part of the romanian priceless medieval monuments. Built by Petru Musat (late 16th century) on a plateau where it could watch all over Moldova Valley, surrounded by huge walls, the fortress was besieged by Sultan Mohamed the 2nd (1476) and by Polish King Ioan Sobieski (1691). In our time, in one of its rooms, there is a small museum.

Royal Courtyard Ruins

Today there are only small remains of the walls and basement foundations, namely Stefan’s Church and Tower (built in 1499), over 20 m high.

Cnejilor Palace

Inside Cehlau parish, after a 3 km walk through the Schit village, on a plateau by the left bank of the above-mentioned brook, there are the imposing ruins of another historic monument. These are all that’s left from a full architectural complex, formerly a monastery and fortified boyar courtyard, a site of many events, preserved in local folklore and legends.
