Ecumenical Tourism


The town-resort Predeal is famous as an all-seasons resort, but also for its Christian faith. The present town has been established two centuries ago around Predeal Monastery, thanks to the religious fervency of its inhabitants. Across the time, various halidoms have been established in Predeal, which spa and leisure offer combines with the ecumenical tourism one.

The church was built in Caraiman stone, in byzantine style and is painted in frescoes. In 1993 the monastery is re-established and committed to six nuns? care. Tourists and believers all over the country come by to pray and recollect.

The orthodox church Saints Emperors Constantine and Helen is located at the centre of Predeal and it was built in mountain style in 1990. In 2005 it was decorated with internal paintings.
Eight nuns live in the Jesus Congregation of Timisul de Sus, hosted by a roman-catholic monastery consecrated to Sainte Theresa of Jesus Child. The orthodox Christians in the area pray at Saint Pantelimon Church, a real wood jewellery.
Another orthodox church which titular saint is Saint Nicholas is located in Timisul de Jos, a place visited mostly by the tourists before starting a hike in the surroundings.
