MOLDOVITA

 The building of this monastery comes in line with a tradition set up by Stephen the Great, the King of Moldaviafrom 1457 until his death in 1504.
The Monastery of Moldoviţa was built in 1532 by Petru Rareş, who was the illegitimate son of Stephen the Great.
 Petru Rareș, who ruled Moldaviafrom 1527 to 1538 and again from 1541 to 1546, promoted a new vision for Bukovinachurches. 
He commissioned artists to cover the interiors and exteriors with elaborate frescoes. The best preserved are the monasteries in the towns of Sucevița, Moldovița, Voroneţ, Humor, Suceava, Pătrăuţi, Arbore and Probota. 
   These eight monasteries including theMonastery of Moldoviţa were placed on UNESCOWorld Heritage list in 1993, as the Painted churches of Moldavia.
