Day 2 | Iasi – Gura Humorului

In the morning we will leave for Gura Humorului, a town located in the heart of Bukovina. Our first stop will be at the crown jewel of the Painted Monasteries, Voronet. The Voronet Monastery is famous due to its frescoes painted in a shade of blue whose composition remains a mystery to the modern world.vAfter Voronet, we will visit another painted monastery, Moldovita. Here, you will be witness to the art of egg dyeing, a craft which is specific to this region of the country.

Our trip continues with a trip to a traditional village located where the time seems to have stood still. Its inhabitants are the Hutsuls, an ancient mountain tribe scattered along the Carpathian Mountains. We will discover their traditions and culture, which are based on family and on nature.

In the evening will return in Gura Humorului for a traditional dinner.

Day 3 | Gura Humorului – Sucevita –  Neamt Fortress – Nicolae Popa Museum – Iasi

Our third day starts with a trip to Sucevita, a Painted Monastery surrounded by fortified walls. The religious edifice is part of the UNESCO heritage and was built in a Moldavian style, with Gothic and Byzantine influences. Its murals are dominated by the color green, obtained through an ancient technique from natural pigments.

At Marginea, we will discover the famous art of black pottery, and then we will visit the Neamt Fortress, an important military and historical landmark that survived the siege of Sultan Mehmed II, the conqueror of Constantinople.

Before heading back to Iasi, we will step inside a private peasant museum. The museum has the name of Nicolae Popa, a local sculptor and a true creator of folklore. Here, you can witness his creation and try on the ritual masks and traditional costumes. On our way back to Iasi, we will visit a beautiful village and an important center for promoting the traditional crafts. The village is famous for making diverse flavors of jam.
