Between stillness and storms, in the womb of the surrounding green, stands guard for almost seven centuries the Holy, Great and Divine Lavra of Tismana, as a Fortress of Heaven, as one of the brightest hearths of prayer and ancient Romanian culture, as a giant museum coming from the past, as unrivalled testimony of glorious history. Considered as the "star of Romanian Orthodoxy", it is the oldest monastery in the country with community life, serving uninterruptedly the culture, faith and memory of this nation since the founding of the Romanian feudal states.
