I was first inspired to visit these Monasteries by a TV program over 20 years ago. Seeing the Monasteries close up did not disappoint. In fact they are even more exceptional than I remembered. Any visit to Romania should include a trip to Bucovina region....More

Plan minimum one day to visit those Monasteries. It is 6 - 8 hours nice trip by car around Suceava. You can overnight there before further trip.
