Day 3 : Gura Humorului - Sucevita - Putna - Gura Humorului

The journey in the beautiful region of Bucovina starts with a visit of Suceviţa monastery, built in the 16th century. Surrounded by sturdy walls, the monastery resembles a fortress and shelters a museum of objects donated by noble or princely families over time. Next, you will take part in an original pottery workshop in Marginea where you’ll be initiated in the craft of molding clay, according to a technique unique in the world. After lunch, you’ll visit Putna, an important monastic establishment dating back 500 years which encloses the tomb of Stephen the Great, an iconic medieval leader who influenced the history of Europe. Not far from Putna you’ll have the chance to see the refuge of a hermit who lived hundreds of years ago, a modest dwelling carved in stone with rudimentary means, over a few decades.

Day 5 : Gura Humorului - Moldovita - Vama - Gura Humorului

The clean, crisp air of the mountains will freshen your morning, as you’re heading on a special train ride with the mocăniţa (an old steam train formerly used for transporting wood logs). We’ll stop for a refreshing lunch in a clearance and on our way back we’ll visit Moldoviţa monastery, an architectural masterpiece in the Byzantine style included among the UNESCO world heritage sites. The afternoon continues with the encounter of a local craftswoman who will reveal interesting details on the art of painting Easter eggs, the old local craft of dyeing and of decorating eggs with colorful, intricate patterns.

Day 6 : Gura Humorului - Targu Neamt - Gura Humorului

Next, we will visit the bison reserve – the European relative of the American buffalo, which is nowadays an endangered species. Close by is Neamţ monastery, the oldest monastic establishment for monks which shelters an impressive, well-preserved library. On our way back we’ll visit the home of a quite original Romanian who turned his house into a museum – Nicolae Popa Museum. Passionate by folklore, he collected antique objects, from weapons and coins to folk costumes and traditional masks.

Overnight in Gura Humorului.

Day 7 : Gura Humorului - Voronet - Suceava - Gura Humorului

Today you’ll admire one of the most beautiful Byzantine monuments, Voroneţ monastery, whose unique color on the outer wall frescoes made it famous in the entire world. Our journey continues with Suceava, the former political capital of this region, where Moldavian rulers fought against three empires at the same time. The ruins of Suceava fortress are worth visiting and so is the Ethnographic Museum, an open-air exhibit of Romanian traditional houses. On our last evening, you’ll have a delightful traditional dinner accompanied by a folk performance.
