Sucevita Monastery - The Church (1581-1601)
Sucevita Monastery
The beauty of Sucevita Monastery has as much to do with its magnificent position as its architecture. The complex stands on the foot of the surrounding hills, carpeted with firs and lash pasters. The church was dedicated to the Resurection, by the Movila brothers. The Movila family produced many distinqushed clerics, among them the famous Petru, Metropolitan of Kiev, who was a moving force in the rein of Prince Vasile Lupu.
