Suceava Travel Guide: 83 reviews and 237 photos
moldavia,15th century,had to resist against the turks.
stephan the great (1457-1504) stimulated the faith and patriotism anti ottoman,building monasteries and sanctuaries.
petru rares (1530-1547) transformed the monasteries into illustrated bibles and epic chronicles to strike the warlike peasants with imagination.
the monasteries look vaguely like pagodas and stand in pleasant villages of nice wooded houses with strengh and attractive colors.
if you are in a hurry and have to choose:at least,visit moldovita and sucevita!
- Pros:painted and situated in a land of hills and pasture
