This was my first 'painted' monastery which I visited during a lengthy visit to Bucovina. The ambiance of the monastery is breath taking and the religious nature of this ecclesiastical institution commands respect. A small fee has to be paid to enter and to take photography which should act as no deterrence at all to visit one of Bucovina's most... More

Great monastery, nice paintings and warming staff. Sorroundings are a bit crowded of tourists but still it is worth a visiit.

Beautiful painted monastery: amazing colours (the dominant one is green). Sucevita remember a fortress! Beautiful paintings outside and inside: in particular the "scale of values", the judgment reserved to Church people, with demons and angels struggling for souls.

Surounded by buildings in shape of a fortress, monastery is taken good care in and out. Do not try to pictures of any monastery inhabitants, as they prohibit that. Religious suvenirs are avaiable at the entrance.

A monastery placed in an area surrounded by spectacular mountains that requires a good feeling great. The monastery is near street to reach it through an alley surrounded by towering trees. The monastery is very large. It is recommended to visit the monastery museum.

One of the many monasteries in the area, it is a UNESCO monument. It is fortified and it is very beautiful. I really loved the frescoes and the serenity inside the church.

It is the best monastery in the region, in an outstanding environment. You should not miss the staircase of Virtues, in the outer wall, with 30 steps leading to Paradise.

Although Voronet is the most famous and well-known of all the Orthodox painted monasteries of Bucovina, Sucevina blew our minds with its beauty. The monastery is surrounded by some great fortification walls, and is surrounded by a lovely garden. While Voronet is famous for its shade of blue, Sucevita has some lovely shades of green, and the outside painting is... More
