Sinaia Monastery Stately Home in Busteni, Wallachia Region, Romania


Called the cathedral of Bucegi Mountains, is the first construction in the area of the present resort, being built at the end of the 17th century

It is said that Mikhail Cantacuzino and his family went on a trip to the holy places. One day he reached an Orthodox monastery on Sinai Mountain, with Saint Catherine as its dedication day. Impressed by what he had seen and felt in the holy lands, when he came home he decided to build a monastery with the same name as Sinai Mountain.
The monastery was built between 1690 and 1695, having as goal the protection of the commercial route on the Prahova River Valley as well. In time, more precisely in the 19th century, because of the great number of monks, a new monastery was built, called Curtea Noua (the New Court), thanks to the efforts of priors Ioasafat and Paisie. This was the first electric lighted place of worship in Romania.
