Cultural and spiritual legacy Rumania
Suceva, the old capital of Moldova between 1388 and 1565 is today a city that allows us to.Use it as a base in the visit to the Romanian region of Bucovina, northeast of Romania. We can choose to sleep here and make excursions and routes to the different painted monasteries that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In fact, one of the attractions of Suceava is also included in the list of Unesco, the Monastery of San Juan el Nuevo. The church, consecrated to St. George in 1514 and completed in 1552, is one of the original temples decorated with frescoes outside.
There were several kings who encouraged its building, from Bogdan III to Stefanita Voda, through the frescoes of the Old and New Testaments that were completed during the reign of Petru Rares, one of the most glorious periods for this type of ornamentation in the mosaics of Bucovina
While the style of the frescoes of St. George reminds of other monasteries such as Moldovita or Humor, other sections such as The Hymn of Death, the tree of Jesse or the legend of the Prodigal Son are very characteristic. From the church we can highlight the mosaic pavement, the relics of San Juan and the tower.
However, the oldest church in the city is the Biserica Mirauti, founded by Petru Musat between 1380-1390. Here the first Moldovan voivodes were crowned. The current temple is the result of a remodeling in the late nineteenth century. In addition, in Suceava there are other prominent churches such as the Principesca or San Demetrio, with its clock tower; or the church of San Juan Bautista of the XVII; besides San Nicolás, the Church of the Resurrection, that of San Simeón, or that of the Holy Cross.
