Romania: Voronet Monastery

Voronet Painted Monastery is on par with Humar – with similar structure and size and absolute loaded with most incredible frescos. This is the most famous of the either UNESCO listed panted Moldavian churches. It was built in 1488 on the orders of the great Moldavian King Stephen the Great in just three months to commemorate the importable victory of Moldavia over a much larger invading Ottoman force in the Battle of Vaslui. The frescoes are particularly rich in intense blue color, known as Voronet blue. The frescos are so elaborate and stunning that the Voronet Monastery is known as rhe “Sistine Chapel of the East”. Also the tomb of the first abbot of the monastery, Saint Daniil the Hermit, is here.
