Artist's Description

The Topolnita Monastery is situated in Izvorul Barzii commune from Mehedinti county. It was built by the Craiovesti boyars in the 16th century, over an old church, which according to the legend was built by Saint Nicodim, who had also built the Tismana Monastery.

The monastery complex is formed by the old church, dedicated to ”The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist”, the tower-bell, the cells and the wooden church dedicated to ”The Saints Emperors Constantin and Helen”.

Topolnita Monastery
Izvoru Barzii, Mehedinti (27km/17mi from Drobeta Turnu Severin)

Topolnita Monastery was originally built in the fourteenth century. It was rebuilt in 1646 and painted in 1673 in the Byzantine style. Remarkably, the Doomsday theme was painted on the exterior western wall, the same as the Monasteries of Moldova. After secularization (1863), the monastery was abandoned. It was re-established in 1930. In 1932, three cells were built next to the monastery. Since then, repairs and restorations were done periodically. At present, an abbot and several monks live the monastic life at Topolnita Monastery.
