⑤ #priNeamt „Agapia - Sihla - Sihăstria - Secu”

Trips through the county



PREAMBLE: All itineraries by car through Neamț county promoted in our application start from the heart of the city (The Royal Court). Regardless of whether they are drawn circularly or linearly, they return to Piatra-Neamț, the details of distances and time being presented below. Some of the attractions are visitable, while others that are on the route can simply be admired either from the distance or by making short detours from the main route. Feel free to decide! But it's good to know that all tourist attractions tell their own story, which is also the reason why we included in the itinerary places more or less known to the general public.

DIRECTIONS AND ORIENTATION: This touristic route will first take you to Agapia, one of the most beautiful monasteries in the entire Neamț County. After visiting it, it's good to know that the "Alexandru Vlahuță" memorial house and the Vivant Museum are nearby, both must-see. You will then proceed along the Agapia river valley to the Sihla Monastery, where the wretched cave of Pious Theodora is located. The next stop is at Sihăstrie, a monastery in the heart of the mountains that began to write its history since 1655. You will end this circuit of the counties' monasteries at Secu, another religious place located in a wonderful natural setting. If you don't want to return on the same route, continue towards Leghin village, and here turn right towards Humulești (today the southern district of Tg. Neamț). Further on, drive on DN15C in the south direction towards Piatra-Neamț via Bălțatești.

DISTANCE AND TIME: 70 km (outbound) and 60 km (return via Tg. Neamț-Bălțătești), so 130 km in total / 3 hours actually driving (round trip), approximately 8-9 hours with visits, breaks and possibly lunch.

EAT & DRINK: The locations along the route where you can eat and drink and that we can recommend are: Conacul Pavăl in Nemțişor, Pension Aristocratis in Tg. Neamț and Pension Eden in Humulestii Noi. You can find them on Google Maps along with many other restaurants in the vicinity of the city. Instead, those in Piatra-Neamț are also listed in the EAT & DRINK section of the application.
