Christmas 2014 spent in Bucharest and Transylvania
Outside Sinaia Monastery, our first stop on my trip with Mr Tripp. The Sinaia Monastery, located in Sinaia, in Prahova County, Romania, was founded by Prince Mihail Cantacuzino in 1695 and named after the great Saint Catherine's Monastery on Mount Sinai in Egypt. As of 2005, it is inhabited by 13 Christian Orthodox monks led by hegumen Macarie Bogus. It is part of the Bucharest archdiocese. This is taken outside the Great Church.
