The Sapanta-Peri Monastery

Very close to Sapanta village there is the Peri Monastery which has the tallest wooden church in the world, 78 meters tall.

This monastery lies in a very picturesque dendrological garden, in the middle of a fairy-tale old forest.

The church is placed on a stone pedestal and is built of oak in the style typical of this region.

The monastery was newly erected in 2003 to replace a very old one, destroyed and plundered by the Hungarian Protestants in 1703.

On top of the very tall wooden roof there is an iron cross, 7 meters tall, weigthing 400 kilos.
