Orthodox monastery is located in the Bogdana central-southern part of the municipality of Rădăuți, vis-à-vis the monument to the heroes of World War I (opened 1920) and the entire equestrian statue of Bogdan I (opened in 1985). The monastery's Church, dating from 1360 and having dedicated Saint Nicholas (6 December) was founded by the voivode Bogdan I (1359-1365), founder of the feudal state of Moldova. It is considered to be the oldest church built in Moldova. The role of the royal necropolis, buried both the Builder and the survivors and the relatives until the reign of Alexandru cel Bun (1400-1432) when the church became the Episcopal residence. During the first reign of Alexandru Lăpușneanu, the Church was restored, he added (1559) a closed porch. Occupation of Bukovina in 1775-1918 period of the Habsburg empire had great influence on the region and the monastery. In the year 1781 they built a tower-steeple, but the following year, the diocese was moved to Czernowitz, and only after another year, in 1783 the monastery was disbanded, being converted into a parish church. Also, some of the cells were demolished, while others converted into stables for the Austrian Garrison stationed here. In the year 1876, next to the Church, was built a parsonage. Bogdana monastery was re-established in 1992 with monks with monks. In 1996 replaced the Church's iconostasis degraded with a new one made of oak. In 1998, has completed construction of a body of cells with arhondaric and a new church dedicated to St. Leontius Bishop from Rădăuți (scrape with Holy relics are located in the old church). The Church is high, with pointed roof, without a steeple. The walls were thick walls 1, 40 m and are supported by 10 buttresses. The architectural style of the Church combines elements of Romanesque, Byzantine and Gothic. It consists of the porch, the pronaos, naos and altar. Inside the narthex and the nave is separated in three aisles by six pillars groși pătratici. It is not known when and who did the original painting. The painting was completed or rebuilt on several occasions. Dashboard votive nave is not attributed with certainty, but considering that the Church is represented without the porch (built by Alexandru Lăpușneanu) then the main character might just founder, Bogdan I, followed by two other rulers that could be Alexandru cel Bun and Ștefan cel Mare.
An absolute masterpiece, different architecture from monasteries throughout the area (almost 200 years earlier). The round is awful but the monastery is superb and alone worth the trip to Bukovina.
Built in 1360, it is the oldest monastery in Moldova. The entrance is free. It is difficult to park near, I was lucky and on the same street I found a clinic that had parking for open customers and I left there the car a moment; If not, had to Park quite further. Besides by their seniority, not you too merit vi monastery, particularly to the interior of the Church, so dark, that it was impossible to see the paintings that decorate it. If we had to go through Radauti can take advantage and visit him and take a spin around the city, which has other beautiful churches. The Orthodox Cathedral is five minutes walk from the monastery. If no pass through here better spend time visiting other monasteries.
The Church of the monastery was founded by the voivode Bogdan I (1359-1365), founder of the Moldovan feudal State, and took the role of the royal necropolis. In fact it is one of the oldest monastery in the northern part of Bucovina, Moldavia and it is time that stayed unchanged since ancient times.
