Breakfast in the morning.
Today you will visit the painted monasteries, unique for the original frescoes both on the inside & outside walls, still preserved in the original style (some of these monasteries being UNESCO heritage).
First, you will be driven to Moldovita Monastery built in 1532, initially
built as a monastery for monks and changed after as a convent for nuns.
The second monastery will be Sucevita which is the largest of all, looking more like a mighty fortress than a monastery. The monastic place, as the last one to be painted on the exterior walls, boasts the best preserved frescoes of Bucovina.
In the end you will visit the most famous painted monastery of all, Voronet Convent also known as “The Sixtine Chapel of the Orient”. Erected in 1488, Voronet Monastery represented one of the first Moldavian creative elements showing a distinctive style. The church is a combination of Byzantine, Gothic and local elements. The exterior painting on the western wall depicts, on five registers, the Doomsday scene, unique in the whole world. The Voronet Monastery entered the universal cultural heritage also for having in the composition of the paintings the inimitable “Voronet blue”.
