Collection(s) "St. George" Church of Cernica Monastery is a majestic building with a three-lobed plan and the lateral apses stuck out. The scenes in the porch depicting the Genesis are of a special interest. It has three turrets. The second name, "Transfiguration", proves the strong links with the Holy Athos Mountain monasteries. The monastery was built in 1608 by the high official Cernica Ştirbei. It shelters and presents icons, binds, and embroideries from the 17th - 19th centuries, fabrics, manuscripts, religious items, ceramic vessels, and relics. In the precinct of the monastery complex there are also the memorial houses of St. Hierarch Calinic of Cernica and of the writer Gala Galaction. In the monastery's cemetery Metropolitan Nifon, the writer Gala Galaction, the painter Ion Ţuculescu, the historian Ion Lupaş, the great theologian Dumitru Stǎniloaie and other famous persons are buried.
