'Sweet Land of Bucovina'
Painted Monasteries of Romania

Tour Description: Self-guided

Hidden away in Romania near the northern part of the Carpathian mountains is the ‘Sweet Land of Bucovina’ with their world famous painted monasteries, each one listed by the UNESCO World Heritage. The monasteries' pictorial texts combine Byzantine iconography with western miniature paintings and Romanian folk tradition.

Besides Mount Athos, Bucovina is the only place in Europe where Byzantine art and iconography was developed and preserved in such an extent and quality. It is still a mystery today how these beautiful outside murals could survive the centuries. On this amazing tour through beautiful landscapes connecting pristine examples of Byzantine art, you cycle from one monastery to the next.
