Entrance in Sucevita by BogdanEpure Entrance in Sucevita by BogdanEpure
Enter with me in Sucevita monastery...
Suceviţa Monastery is an Eastern Orthodox convent situated in the Northeastern part of Romania. It is situated in the village Suceviţa, 18 km away from the city of Rădăuţi, Suceava County. It was built in 1585 by Ieremia Movilă, Gheorghe Movila and Simion Movila.
The architecture ot the church contains both Byzantine and gothic elements, and some elements typical to other painted churches of northern Moldavia. Both interior and exterior walls are covered by mural paintings, which are of great artistic value and depict biblical episodes from the Old and New Testament. The paintings date from around 1601, which makes Suceviţa one of the last monasteries to be decorated in the famous Moldavian style of exterior paintings.
The interior court of the monastic ensemble is almost square (100 by 104 meters) and is surrounded by high (6 m), wide (3 m) walls. There are several other defensive structures within the ensemble, including four towers (one in each corner). Suceviţa was a princely residence as well as a fortified monastery. The thick walls today shelter a museum that presents an outstanding collection of historical and art objects.
In August, 1st, 2010, the monastery has been inscribed by UNESCO on its list of World Heritage Sites.
