Welcome to Bucovina Monasteries

The monasteries are hailed mainly for their colourful external frescoes, many of which have survived the region’s cruel winters relatively intact. The external wall paintings served as both expressions of faith and as an effective method of conveying important biblical stories to a parish of mostly illiterate soldiers and peasants. But don’t pass up the rich interiors, where every nook and cranny is filled with religious and cultural symbolism.
