“The Dragomirna Monastery, a unique monastic assembly”

Dragomirna Monastery
Ranked #2 of 26 things to do in Suceava
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 13, 2018

Among the valuable religious monuments and religious art that attract the admiration of the tourists there is also the Dragomirna Monastery, in northern Moldavia, Suceava County.
What impressed me is that the monastery holds the tallest and narrowest church ever founded. It is amazing that the church gives the impression of a ship and the entire monastery resembles a fortress. A walkway surrounds the walls of the church, and the view on it demonstrates the special character of the monastery. Height and elegance best characterize the entire monastic construction.
This worship place is surrounded by fir trees and is located near a lake. And so the surroundings of the place are wonderful, giving me a deep tranquility and relaxation. Through its age, through the originality of the style, the elegance and unity of the volume, through the picturesque and refinement, the monastery awakens everyone's admiration.

Monasteries in Romania are pretty uniform; inside the fort there is always a church, but this monastery has ample doors that are not alike and they were made with advanced craftsmanship skills (see photographs). I also got to see some monks on site and there was a tasty and cold water well between the entrance and the inside church on the field near the gift shop.

The peacefull of the monastery and nun was great. The lake near the monastery invite you to meditation with yourself.

We travelled by bicycle from Suceava. Approximately 2,5 hours. Dragomirna monastry is extremely beautiful place with unique church inside, friendly nuns and possibility to stay in the nearby camping. Its work till 8pm. We had not time to make hiking around but i think it pretty nice. We didnt see the lake which usually on photoesof this monastery. It not exist any more. There is a forest road to Patrauci not accessible for cars. Only 6 km pleasant walk or ride.
We bought in the monastery testy syrope and creams which are done by nuns.
Entrance fee was 1,5 USD pp. Photo and video 1,5 USD more.
All in local currency. No place for changing. We didn't see restaurants or cafe by the way. The only place we saw was camping with basic shop and small restaurant. But we didn't eat there. There are some pansions near but we didn't saw them.

baroque church, with very nice stone decorations (something similar could be seen to Trei Ierarhi Church in Iasi)
church with incredible high for such a narrow building
impressive defense walls
but beyond the architecture, a feeling of peace could appear, and this is really good
it really worth a detour
