The cave of Saint Andrew – the Bethlehem of Romanians


Few things are known about the cave of Saint Andrew the Apostle. It was discovered in 1918 by Jean Dinu, a lawyer, who, after dreaming one night, came in this area and found the cave in an advanced state of degradation. After cleaning the vegetation, he built a couple of cells and the first monks came in a short time. The cave was sanctified in 1943 but during the communist period it was destroyed and turned into a shelter for animals. In 1990, with the blessing of the Romanian church, it started to restore the cave and to build the monastery.[……………]

Pestera Sfantului Andrei – Bethleem-ul romanilor


Putine lucruri sunt cunoscute despre pestera Sfantului Apostol Andrei.

Dupa ce a curatat vegetatia care pusese stapanire pe pestera, el a construit cateva chilii si primii calugari au venit aici in scurt timp. Pestera a fost sanctificata in 1943 dar in timpul perioadei comuniste a fost distrusa si transformata in adapost pentru animale.
