Prislop Monastery

Even though it is located in Transylvania, the Prislop Monastery was built in the style of the monasteries of Wallachia.  How come that this happened?

The story is that Lady Zamfira, the daughter of a reigning of the Wallachia, was ill and went at the monastery. Here she drank water from a spring and healed. As a sign of gratitude, she rebuilt the monastery and remained here for the rest of her life.

Later on, the person who brought the reputation to the monastery was Arsenie Boca, The Wise. The story is that people from all over the country came to him to listen and to receive advice. There are many Christians even today who go at the monastery and pray at his tomb.
