A place very close to God. This cultural heritage is a place to pray, quite and warm. The colors are something you've never seen.

Popular monastery, there for crowded. Entrance fee. No guide but many locals (even some taxi driver) know a lot of stories around the monastery with its unique and mysterious blue painting.

At least once in your life you have to visit the beautiful monasteries of Bucovina. They are all beautiful and, at the same time, each is special in its own way. The road to the monastery is good. Do not miss Daniil's Sihastru cell too.
