About this activity
One day trip with driver-guide to see the highlights of the famous UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Monasteries of Bucovina. The tour includes visits to the worldwide best-known monasteries of Voronet, Moldovita and Sucevita. This day trip is the perfect choice to get an idea about what Bucovina means, which became region administrated by Austro-Hungarian Empire between 1785 until 1918 following to Russian Austrian conflicts. First stop is Voronet Monastery, known as The Sistine Chapel of Eastern Europe due its exterior blue frescoes showing “The Last Judgment”. Of course, here’s the place where You will discover a lot about the former Moldavian rulers like Stephan the Great, who leaded Moldavia almost for his entire life dedicated to a permanent fight against the Ottoman Empire. Stephan’s the Great role was a major one in Europe’s Dark Age since his small kingdom was like a buffer zone between the Muslim expansion towards the Christianity of Europe, that’s why he was named by the Papa Sixt as “Athleta Christi” due his fights in name of Christianity. In just half hour by car from Voronet the road will take you to another mountain village, where is located The Monastery of Moldovita, one of the first painted

monasteries in Bucovina, completed in 1532. Crossing Obcina Mare mountain, you will discover the late 16th century Sucevita monastery the newest between the painted churches.

This tour to Bucovina was just an amazing time. My guide Radu was awesome. The ability to just sit back and enjoy the drive and scenery was a great way to go. The painted monasteries were just fantastic, so much history and the stories they tell....just incredible. The amazing views from up in the mountains always makes me come back to Romania. Watching the potters at Marginea was fascinating, how quickly they can turn out some of the products. The black pottery was so different to what we can be used to seeing. All in all, a great day.
