Excerpt from the presentation:

“In the extreme north of Romania, not far from the Ukraine and Moldova, is the monastery of Suceviţa, one of the most beautiful sites in the Bukovina region, the historical heart of Moldavia at the foot of the Carpathians Mountains. Its interior and exterior walls are entirely decorated with frescoes and paintings.

In winter, when the thick forests that surround it are covered with snow, the nuns lead a quiet and isolated life there. But when spring returns, the monastery and the village awake to life and celebrate the Resurrection of Christ.”
