Moldavia Monasteries

There is a legendary land, in the north of Moldavia, where history is at home in monasteries and citadels, where you can find traces from old Romanian civilization and traditions born from the treasure of Romanian folklore. Most of the monasteries were built under the rule of Stefan the Great who erected them after each battle he won against the Turks, this way creating a new architectural style: the Moldavian Style. These monasteries combine the Byzantine influence with that of the Italian Renaissance. Sixty monasteries exist in Moldavia U.N.E.S.C.O. heritage sites. One of the most amazing treasures of Moldavian art is the outside frescoes of the monasteries. The fresco – “the most difficult and the most daring way of painting” as Michelangelo used to call it – has lasted in Bucovina for almost five centuries.
