Here at least is the porch. Then we traveled to the mountains, towards the old city of Sibiu.
It is an attractive old town, with well kept older houses. A busy market was taking place, with lots of gypsies selling their wares, mostly copper utensils and wooden items [rather crudely made].
The town Hall
Continuing in the Karpathian mountains, we visited the Curtea de Arges monastery, which was rather too well attended! So many people that I got a bit claustrophobic in the church. Add the heat...
This is the church seen from the rear, partially hidden by trees.
We also went to the 14th Century Cozia Monastery, which I found very attractive.
As you see, it was crowded as well. so I sought relief in the gardens.
It was very cheerful, with lots of bright flowers. The monastery appeared well kept, with flower pots in the windows.
The rear of the church seen from the garden.
I will continue my report as time allows!
