Every building part of the monastery is made of wood. The place is surrounded by hills and mountains and everything is green. You won't regret visiting it.

This area is home to many monasteries and the famous gates that adorn private homes. The Barsana monastery has it all. Located on a hill top with gorgeous views is a collection of architecturally wonderful buildings and a magnificent ornate gate surrounded by beautiful landscaping.

Wasn't sure what to expect when came to visit, but so pleasantly suprised at this beautiful place! From the monastery, to the small church and the entire site, everything was well done and made for such a pleasant visit.

Very beautiful place in the middle of a space where traditions were forgotten. The church is absolutley wonderful and the wallpaintings done in very light colours, contrasting with monasteries in Bucovina. It is a place which has to be visited.

Spent quite a bit of time there photographing this beautiful place. The grounds were beautifully landscaped with perennial flowers and the buildings are just captivating.
