The Celic Dere Monastery is situated in Frecatei Commune, in Tulcea County and is one of the most well known monasteries in Dobrogea, considered the center of Orthodoxism of the area.
It is named after the nearby river, which translated from Turkish means “River of Steel”. According to the existing documents, the first church was built here at the beginning of the 19th century by the bishop Athanasie Lisivencof. Today, a cemetery can be found on this land. The people that built the church were priests from Transylvania and Basarabia, who had lived on the Athos Mountain, in Greece.
The little church burnt around the 1840s, the sultan Abdul-Medgid (1839-1861) from Constantinople approved to the building of a new church. Thus, in 1846, the first church was built, with “The Assumption of the Holy Virgin” as its dedication day and a chapel with “The Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel” as its dedication day.

Mama ce misto ti-a iesit asta, pacat de turla din stanga, oricum ai DOF bine de tot, si cu omuleti cu tot. Culori tari, exact asa cum imi plac mie.
Good work, sir!

a clever choice of POV that is original and very effective. It entices and mesmerises and is beautifully sharp and clear with excellent DOF. An appealing and attractive shot full of wonderful colours and elements. Superb!
