Near the hermitage is “The Thracian rider” or the Danubian horseman, one of the pre-Christian carvings. The pagan cult developed in southern Romania and was adopted by the Christian church as Saint George (Sf. Gheorghe in Romania), one of the many pre-Christian cults that were given Christian meaning.
