Here yellow is the dominant color and the amazing and perfectly conserved fresco is the "Constantinople siege". It's really difficult to choose between exterior fresco and the interio ones!

Choose an early hour for visiting, as in this time of year are crouds of tourists all over the world visiting Bucovina. Once inside, photography is not alowed. Parking is available but limited.

A monastery of the same name located in the town of Suceava county. It is a monastery that offers silence and emotion that created the history of this monastery offers.

Like many other churches in this area, this one also is a UNESCO monument. If you go in Bucovina, for sure you have to pay a visit to some of the churches there. Moldovita is beautiful, especially due to its frescoes and its fortifications.

The church is one of the best in the region. You can admire internal and external frescos, in yellow and blue colors. Flowers are everywhere.

My husband and I visited Moldovita Monastery on a group bustour around Romania. On first sight the monastery church looked a lot like the one in Voronet (except for the colourscheme), until we got the excellent explanation of resident sister Tatiana , who proved to be a treasure trove of knowledge about the architecture and meaning of the decorations of...

This was the second we visited (out of three). Frankly I found it much like Sucevita. Not being much into religious art history the finer points of which story is told and which not did not seem too important to me . The churches are all impressive but personally one would have been enough for me. My partner and the... More

Yet another stunning painted monastery but make sure you also visit the 'Princely House' Museum in the grounds. TIP - buy the glossy booklet 'Bukovina The Monastery Archipeligo' - It's cheaper than three separate camera fees and has great photos.
