Dobrogea Sites - Dervent Monastery

The Dervent Monks Monastery ("Across the Valley" in Turkish), was founded by the monk Elefterie Mihai between 1929 and 1936, on a place named "Healing Cross", near ex-Roman fortress Dervent, close to Danube bank.

The monastic establishment is visited by the many sick – particularly on the day of the “Lifting of the Holy Cross” (which is celebrated on 14th of September), being regarded as a sacred healing place.
