Our first stop of our tour will be at Saharna Monastery. Initially the monastic complex embodied a small hermitage – Horodiste and a small church dug into the rock honoring of the feast of the Annunciation. In 1776, the monk Vortolomeu Crungul and several other monks came from Russia and settled the complex. They repaired the church and its cells. The hermitage church was built in 1776 in honor of the feast of the Assumption. In 1863, Abbot Serafim built another church for winter services and a series of cells were built. It was in honor of the feast of the Holy Virgin Mother of God. The hermitage church comprises of an altar carved in rock, separated from the rectangular nave by a small iconostas. Some cells are contained in the building site. The front monastery wall was built from rock, so the current wall was also made from stone blocks. Saharna is also famous for its waterfalls. The river Saharna has 22 waterfalls. One of the most beautiful is very close to monastery, falling from a height of 10 meters and forming a deep pool which is called the "Gipsy Hole".
