Judetul Suceava Things to Do: 26 reviews and 72 photos
Putna, included on Unesco's list of world heritage monuments, is the first of several monasteries founded by Stephen the Great.
The story says that Stephen went to the top of a hill and shot an arrow saying that wherever it fell the church would be built. A section of the tree trunk containing the arrow is still kept in the monastery museum. This monastic museum is famous for its precious objects from Stephen's time: embroideries, silver and lether objects, tapestries, manuscripts, paintings, sculptures.
At about 2 kms of Putna monastery there is Daniil Sihastrul's cave (he was known as Stephen confessor).
