Maria-Radna Monastery, Lipova | Arthur Mustafa Photography This Church is in Romania now....not far from Arad.  My Grandma always had in her possession a little cup with the picture of this church. It was a place of a pilgrimage where (perhaps years ago) one would walk on the sidewalk to the church...on their knees!
