Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1:
ROUTING: GURA HUMORULUI
- Upon arrival to Bucovina your host will welcome you to the area (Note: If you require a transfer from Suceava or another location inquire for details to arrange this)
- Check in accomodation
- Enjoy a half day tour of the precincts of Humor
- The Monastery of Voronet "The St. George" Church. One of the best-known establishment of Stefan the Great and also the best-known monument of the medieval religious art in Bucovina is a few kilometres from the town of Gura Humorului. It lies under afforested mountains, full of freshness and peace.
Built in 1488, the building was destined by the ruler to his most faithful adviser, Daniil the Hermit. His tomb is in the monastery and his well-known shelter carved in stone is at Putna.
It is a quite small church with a three-conic plan. Architecturally it is characteristic to the Moldavian style of this time: a tower suspended on vaults with diagonal arches. The altar and the naos had preserved the original interior painting since the church was built. Impressive in many respects, this painting is as important as the exterior fresco and impress, among others, due to its extraordinary votive picture, newly cleaned.
In 1547 the closed porch was added to the church and the exterior wall was painted at the request of Bishop Grigore Rosca. The exterior wall becomes famous for its âœVoronet blueâ�. The herald Marcus seems to be the creator of this fresco. It projects its colour harmony and the rigour of composition on the well-known intense blue background.
The monasteryâ™s fortified precincts preserve the remains of some buildings and the belfry. Furthermore, the Voronet exeterior decoration ends the great epoch of mural painting supported by Petru Rares (1527 â“ 1538 and 1541-1546).
- The Humor Monastery "The Assumption of The Virgin" Church The present monastery is the establishment of the chancellor Teodor Bubuiog, who built it in 1530. It replaced an older building and its ruins can still be seen in the village. The church is a masterpiece of the old Moldavian art due the harmony of its proportions and its interior and exterior wall painting.
This dates back to 1535 and was achieved by the request of the ruler Petru Rares by an important artist of the time: Toma from Suceava. The frescos are predominantly red. The church has nor steeples, but shows the oldest open porch, the first of this kind in the Moldavian church architecture. The belfry was built by the ruler Vasile Lupu in 1641.
