MOLDOVA/MOLDAVIA and BUCOVINA
Situated in the eastern part of Romania, Moldova covers an area starting from the mountains (the Eastern Carpathians), passing over the Subcarpathian hills and the Moldavian Plateau, ending by the Prut.
The scenery in the mountains is very similar to Switzerland. You will be impressed by the Gorges of Bicaz, Zabalei and Zugreni, by the so-called "Rocks of the Dacians", by the spectacular waterfalls Duruitoarea and Putna.
The lakes (Bistritza, Siret, Uz, Lacul Rosu) - natural or man-made - represent other worth seeing attractions, places where you can take a good rest, admire nature, fish and hunt: Bistrita, Siret, Uz, Lacul Rosu.
Mineral and thermal springs cure various diseases and affections in well known spas: Vatra Dornei, Poiana Negrii, Slanic Moldova, Vama, Strunga, Bicaz, Targu Ocna, Baltatesti, Oglinzi, Campulung Moldovenesc, Durau, Izvoru Muntelui, Targu Ocna, Soveja.
Moldova is very rich in cultural and religious traditions. The monasteries in Bucovina have extraordinary mural paintings and are richly adorned; their frescoes were awarded important prizes, such as "Pomme d'Or/the Golden Apple" of the International Union of Travel Journalists and Writers. A visit to Voronet, Moldovita, Sucevita, Arbore, Humor Monasteries is more than a cultural and spiritual experience !
At the end of the day, you will see that Moldova is not only the cradle of sacred art and architecture, but also the most important "wine factory" of Romania ...
