  • To the North of Romania, in Bukovina, we find a wonderful collection of five painted monasteries entirely on the exterior and in the interior that have been recognized as world heritage by UNESCO. Only the visit of these monasteries is already worth a visit to the country that, on the other hand, has much more to offer us. The five monasteries can be visited on the same day, already offering us a nearly circular walk of about 130 kms, roads are generally in good condition, and that we will also go by very beautiful, like Pasul Ciusmarna, and by traditional populations, as Marginea, cradle of the black pottery. The only church that we have something out of the circuit is Arbore, to which we have to make a detour of about 8 kms. to the ida, and other both to the turned, to return us to the circuit main. It is the least interesting Church, is very damaged and is undergoing restoration; It is also the only one that does not have a fixed timetable of visit; probably it will find closed and we will have that call by phone to someone come to open it. We can get rid of it. The other four churches are absolutely not to be missed; If we start from Voronet, can make the Voronet-Moldovita-Sucevita-Humor-Voronet travel, either in reverse; or well starting from any other point but always in the same order. The monasteries have a schedule very broad of opening, usually between them 07.00 and them 21.00 hours and them prices of input tend to be very cheap: 5 lei (little less than a euro), adults; 2 lei, children; 10 lei and 10 lei, photography and video. He is only allowed to take pictures and record video on the outside, but in practice it is possible to photos on the inside of the churches. All accounts with nearby inexpensive parking.

  • the paintings of Orthodox monasteries are already fascinating of them inside but take the path of rapprochement and admire them already outside make these monasteries are almost magical. the best preserved are less exposed to weather fronts

  • All good day. The monastery itself is unique. It is unique that the painting is made of ink, which so far have not been able to repeat and which does not lose its color for centuries. At least one such plan monastery having been in Romania visit need somewhere else except in Romania you will not find. I recommend this as the most I liked. More details can be viewed in my blog in Yandex on request-report on the visit to Romania by car. Location map, price hits, etc. all can be found there.
