  • Beautiful Orthodox monasteries with shades of blue-painted some very gruesome. Interesting interior arrangement of the rooms reserved for women and men. Gardens at times very cared for. Offer great sense of serenity.

  • if you came in Bucovina you must see all the monasteries all are wonderful you can learn very important thinks you must visit this monastery  more »
  • The peculiarity of these Orthodox monasteries is frescoed both inside and outside, the walls facing north have lost much of the color due to the strong winds and rains that rage in the region, while those on other walls were miraculously preserved. What is striking about these monasteries are the wonderful paintings exterior, very rare characteristics given the Interior of the monasteries was small and could not accommodate all the faithful, it seems that external paints needed to engage and explain to the people, for the more illiterate, the religious rite. Smoking is prohibited abroad, I suggest we wear clothing respectful, in summer are usually open until 19.00, the entrance is free of charge and you also pay for permission to take pictures. Are all very nice, those who are most affected are those of Voronet and Sucevita.
