We took a taxi and drove around all the monasteries of this area with churches, whose walls are covered with frescoes and outside, and in the Interior. This countryside, industrial cities are missing. Mountain thickets of dense forest. Taxi driver (the car with the Orthodox icons) took a little money. Us all the way from the heat saved air conditioning. Temples of these monasteries have in common. The murals were washed away by rain and snow on the north side, the other facades are well preserved. Churches have a large roof, to protect the frescoes. Photograph the Interior cannot be. The territory of the monasteries, many colors.show original

We went in June and all the monasteries had not more 10 people watching (imagine that in August will not), but I gave the impression that should not be a very crowded tourist site, which is greatly appreciated. Enjoy the paintings of its facades, in each monastery dominates a color, its interior rich and so well tended gardens, it is a pleasure. This Sucevita is of the most largest and best preserved, but the set of all of them is worth a trip to this beautiful country.show original
This is one of 5 monasteries that are unique to Romania and should be visited. It has beautiful paintings in the inside and outside of the church. They are recognised by unesco as an important cultural asset.
This was the most inspiring of the painted monasteries for me, and in my opinion one of the top 5 most beautiful churches in Europe.
If you visit Romania, you need to visit Bucovina. If you visit Bucovina, you need to visit its beautiful monasteries. If you visit monasteries, then you need to see Sucevita, which is one of the nicest ones. If you visit Sucevita, you need to visit its surroundings, so you need to stay there and enjoy the places, its people, the local food, and have fun.
