Painted Monasteries of Bucovina


Customize a Painted Monasteries Tour of Romania

The frescos of the painted monasteries in the north are among the most picturesque treasures of Romania.  Set amidst the scenery of the surrounding mountains in villages known for their traditional way of life. Each fresco tells a different biblical story on its painted walls of on the outside and inside of the monasteries, as well on the ceiling of the interior. The illustrated scenes resemble prayers, episodes of sacred hymns and themes such as The Last Judgment and The Ladder of St. John, all in colorful and rich imagery of apostles, evangelists, philosophers, martyrs, angels and demons. When visiting Romania a detour to the north is much worth the experience. Below are some of the most important monasteries:
