We came to Suceava on our way from Cluj-Napoca to Chernivtsi in Ukraine. Make sure that you will visit the Moldavian monasteries from Suceava. Most of those outdoor and indoor wall painted churches are UNESCO protected.

Suceava itself was first mentioned in the 14th century when it was fortified by Petru I. Musat. It eventually became the capital of the Moldavian princes. During those times the town reached its peak. Once the capital was transferred to Iasiin 1565, everything went downhill. Under the Hungaro-Austrian rule it was just another provincial town. Today, Suceava is an industrial town with around 110000 inhabitants.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Castle, churches and a most friendly hostel!
  • Cons:A bit off the beaten path.
  • In a nutshell:A good base for the Moldavian monasteries!

    Lebanon is a wonderful country but I might be subjective :) However, I see you've been to our local wonders. I hope you'll also enjoy Timisoara. ;)

    Hello Sonja, this is a very well-written page on Suceava with a lot of useful information. The hostel looks like a good cheap place to stay and the restaurant looked like good value as well. fergy.

    Again I was thankful for the VT maps so I could see where this place is! It does seem to be "A bit off the beaten path" -- but very interesting. Funny that they have a bus line mainly for people smuggling cigarettes.

    I loved the cat photo of course but also enjoyed the portrait of this town I'd never previously heard of. You two are experts in getting off the beaten path :))
