Monasteries of Bucovina

Strengthened monasteries locking buildings around an Orthodox Church with walls completely covered with frescoes, inside as outside. Under the wide overflowing roof, the paintings preserved well since 2 or 3 centuries represent religious scenes and historic or imaginary events.

Monastery de Moldovita  
 Numerous orthodox monasteries are distributed in Bucovina, with more or less well preserved frescoes. But not being too fond of excessive religiosity nor tourist destinations, I have not go to see all of them, but I could not either avoid some visits. Places of the most peaceful however except the hours of the middle of day.
