Moldovița Monastery

I have been having a major reorganisation of my cards recently, trying to anyway, and I came across this beautiful picture of the Church of the Annunciation of Moldovita Monastery in Romania.  It is one of the eight painted churches grouped together and listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.  These were all built during the 15th and 16th centuries and all have amazing frescoes on the outside walls.

The others are:
Church of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist
Church of the Assumption of the Virgin of the former Humor Monastery
Church of the Holy Rood of Pătrăuti
Church of St. Nicholas and the Catholicon of the Probota Monastery
Saint John the New Monastery of Suceava
Church of St George of the former Voronet Monastery
Church of the Resurrection Sucevita Monastery


  1. I hadn't heard of the painted churches. very cool.

  2. Such a beautiful church. In my travels, I've never managed to visit Romania. I can see why this is a World Heritage Site.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
