Cozia Monastery

I packed for a 3 days trip to Bucharest, where some of my colleagues had to attend The Int. Theatre Festival for Children. And since Mate was the "big, bad Wolf "of the story, I wanted to see how he was going to scary all those children :)))
Plus, I've never been along the Olt river channel before, and it was truly amazing!
I got to visit (also for the first time), the Cozia Monastery. It was built by Mircea cel Batran in 1388 (ooo!!) and barring the fact that it's one of the most known and valuable monuments of national medieval art and architecture in Romania, I was grateful to see it. The church of the monastery was used on a Romanian stamp in 1968. :)
