Sucevita Monastery - The Church (1581-1601)
Sucevita Monastery
The church inside the fortified monastic enclosure, is almost completely covered with frescoes. The western wall of the monastery remains bare of any impresive frescoes. Legend has it that the artist fell off the scaf-folding while attempting to paint the wall and was killed, leaving artists of the time too scared to follow in his footsteps.
