"Zăvoi" Park Vâlcea

We have just visited this old park from Vâlcea County, founded in 1850, thanks to the kind efforts of Lord Barbu Ştirbei, a proud Oltenian who hailed from mighty Craiova to the south. That's why our trip was one of the most wonderful.

The fourth and the eighth classes have celebrated the completion of primary and secondary education in "Parâng" Hotel from Olăneşti resort.

Cotmeana Monastery

Important medieval historical monument in the south-east of Europe, Cotmeana Monastery is the oldest in Wallachia. Initially, it was built by Radu I, ruler of Wallachia (1377- 1389), then the church was restored by Mircea the Old (1386-1418) between 1387-1389, being an excellent place of stopover on the way from Pitesti to Cozia Monastery. It became one of the important foundation of the voievode Mircea the Old. We have just visited it last weekend during our trip to Olăneşti.

A Visit to Cozia Monastery

Cozia Monastery, erected close to Călimăneşti by Mircea cel Bătrân in 1388 and boasting his tomb, is one of the most valuable monuments of national medieval art and architecture in Romania.

The appearance of the compound was modified under Neagoe Basarab (1517), Şerban Cantacuzino and Constantin Brâncoveanu (1707), who added a veranda, a new fountain, a chapel and a watch tower, adding to its architecture the 'brâncovenesc style'.

Wall facets' decorations with original stone rosettes and frames display early Byzantine influence.

Of great value is the hospital church, 'bolniţa' (1543), with original well-preserved indoor frescoes like the votive portrait of ruler Mircea cel Bătrân and his sons.

Cozia was painted between 1390 and 1931. Some of the original frescoes (1390) are still well preserved.

Cozia features a museum of exhibiting old art: old manuscripts and prints, embroideries and objects of worship.
