Collection(s)A historic monument, a princely building from 1492 belonging to Radu the Great, that prevented St. Govora Monastery from falling into pieces, by building up stone churches, defence walls and cells. During the reign of Prince Matei Basarab a print functioned here and later Constantine Brancovan restored it, adding up the porch. The painting is in the Brancovan style, and was achieved by the monks of the Hurez painting school. The exhibits include wooden icons from the 18th - 19th centuries, cloth icons, a bell from the time of Prince Vlad Ţepeş, religious objects and vessels.
