Countryside in BucovinaBucovina is a historical region in the north of Romania. It is currently split between Romania and Ukraine, after the northern part of the territory was occupied by the USSR after World War II.

Throughout history the territory of Bucovina went through a lot of changes, both in size and occupancy and after gaining its independence, Romania strived to incorporate this region of great significance to its history not only for being the heart of the Moldavian Principality in the early centuries, but also for the monuments of art and distinct architecture which remain proof of the greatness in Romania’s tumultuous past.

The most common form of tourism practiced here is the religious one, thanks to monasteries such as Voronet, whose shade of blue is unique in the world thus the name ‘Voronet blue’ and also renown for the courage of its painter to use in the biblical reproductions traditional Moldavian Painted Monasteries of Bucovinamusic instruments; or Moldovita, one of the oldest religious establishments, famous among the other monasteries in Bucovina for the scene of the crucifixion, compared to the Italian masterpieces; Humor, together with Moldovita, Sucevita, Voronet and Arbore is unique in the Orthodox world for the interior and exterior Byzantine frescoes.

This land has a magic about it that can’t be described; only experienced.
