Introducing Moldavia & the Bucovina Monasteries

Less visited than other parts of Romania, Moldavia rewards those intrepid enough to seek it out: from glorious medieval monasteries to rugged mountains ideal for skiing and hiking, this singular region combines natural and artistic beauty with plenty of action.

Moldavia’s bucolic villages and oddly endearing towns feature some of Romania’s friendliest locals. Beyond the hinterland’s traditional ways, Moldavian modernity is fully displayed in Iaşi, Romania's second-largest city and a vibrant student town famous for its nightlife, shopping and exquisite, varied architecture.

Within Romania, Moldavia's known for its rolling plains, interrupted only by the accidental cluster of trees or grazing horse. These sweeping vistas are particularly hypnotic by evening, when fading sunlight spreads across the land and vast sky, suffusing both in tones and shapes as rich and varied as Moldavia's monastic art.
