Definitely don't miss the Humor and Voronets monasteries. These are unique cultural patrimony, and very beautiful. Easy access from Gura Homorului, which is good base for exploring all the Bucovina... more »
Nice church and grounds. The high tower is worth the visit, but do be careful on the narrow and steep steps. I would not reccomend them for the "larger" individual. The views from the top are nice, 360 degrees. Entry fee as most places 5 lei (£1), extra for photo or video. Go figure.
A lovely little monastery with a tower, the frescoes that remain have fantastic bright colours. Unfortunately one side of the monastery has almost no colour left.
