Sweet land of Bukovina!
Visit the most important and appreciated monasteries in Bukovina, a historical region shared by Romania and the Ukraine, on a full-day trip from Iasi. See 3 of the 8 churches that are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and explore your surroundings while gaining a greater understanding of the cultural and historic significance of the area.
The monasteries of Voroneț, Humor, and Suceviţa were all built between the late 15th century and the late 16th century, and their external walls are covered in fresco paintings inspired by Byzantine art. Far from being mere wall decorations, the paintings form a systematic covering on all the facades and represent complete cycles of religious themes. Their exceptional composition, the elegance of the characters, and the harmony of the colors blend perfectly with the surrounding countryside.
On your return trip, stop in the commune of Marginea for a black pottery workshop, before returning to Iasi.
