The Monastery is situated in Bucovina, in the North of Romania. It's one of the most beautiful construction with great architecture and exterior paintings. It was under construction and renovating at that time. It is a monument with a great value.

It's a place you can't miss. The walls outside and inside the church are all covered with religious paintings with strong colours. All the space is beautiful.
