The medieval monastic complex on the Olt bank, the Cozia monastery built by craftsmen from Serbia, between 1387-1391 is a foundation of Mircea cel Bătrân, ruler of Wallachia (1386-1394, 1397-1418). He, during his 29 years of reign, helped the monastery.

In addition to assigning the domains, he was given the right to exploit the salt at Ocnele Mari, the washing of the golden sands on Olt and Stan's valley, and he had the right to wipe out Turkish and Hungarian goods passing through the Olt Valley.

This is where a monastic school also functioned in 1415. Mircea cel Bătrân dies at the age of 60 (1418), and was buried in the Cozia Monastery. From 1605 here is the monastic place of Teofana, the mother of Mihai Viteazul.

The monastery is made up of the large church, cellars, the church church and two chapels. Over time the great church has undergone several changes. The cross on the tower is from the time of Mircea cel Bătrân, as well as seven windows of the nave and the altar.

The original painting, made between 1390-1391 and renovated in 1517, was preserved only in the narthex. The nave and the altar were painted in 1707 by the Painter and the sons. Between 1984-1986 was restored whole painting. Old wooden iconostasis, burned in 1794 and was rebuilt in brick.
