Dragomirna Monastery (1609)
Dragomirna Monastery
Dragomirna Monastery was founded in 1609 by the scholar, artist and bishop Anastasie Crimca. The intricate rope lacing around the side of the main church represents the unity of the Holy Trinity and the short-lived unification of the principalities of Moldavia, Wallachia and Transylvania in 1600. The church tower is 42m tall.
