Carbuna Hermitage – Neamt County

20 August 2010 No Comment

carbuna-hermitage-neamt-countyCarbuna hermitage is located in Neamt County, close by “Dragos Voda” Bison and Carpathian Fauna Reserve and you can reach there by foot walking from the reserve. The hermitage is located in Vanatori-Neamt village, approximately 3 km away from Neamt Monastery.

The land on which the hermitage was build is the property of Neamt Monastery and in the past this was the place from where they used to defend and organize the life in Neamt Fortress. Also, here was a place where people once processed wood coal with the purpose of making the iron used at Neamt Monastery.

During the two World Wars here was a place where many battles were fought and this is the reason for which many Christians come here to honor the fallen heroes of our country. In the cemetery where they buried the soldiers that fought here, in 1995 a crucifix was build and the religious service was held by High Patriarch Daniel (the head of the Romanian Orthodoxy).

In 2001 High Patriarch Daniel established Carbuna Hermitage here where so many soldiers died to defend our country, with Stephen the Great as its Holy patron. The hermitage is build in the middle of an oak plantation nearby the cemetery where heroes from the Second World War are buried. The hermitage is administrated by Neamt Monastery. Between 2001 and 2003 a set of cellars were build for the monks that live and pray here.

From Carbuna Hermitage you can walk to Neamt Monastery or to other hermitages of the monastery: Vovidenia Hermitage, Pocrov Hermitage, Icona Veche Hermitage.
