Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Some elaborate paintings inside and out. The detail of the art is worth the visit. No photo's permitted inside. If you are a shopper, there are many stalls on the way towards the entry. 10 Lei entry fee (May 2023) and parking was 5 Lei.

Very nice, old monastery, close to Gura Humorului (about 10 minutes drive). There is a fee you must pay for visiting the monastery, 10 lei (2 euro) for adults, 5 lei (1 euro) for children. You can also climb to the top of the tower, there's a nice view of the surrounding area from up there.

This monastery is a little more remote than some other monasteries but is only a 4km drive north of Gura Humorului. There is free parking in the square and it is only a short walk from here. The site is more compact than some others and very well tended. Our personal view is that the paintings were not quite as refined as some other monasteries but nevertheless, it is worth visiting and most of the paintings remain in very good condition.

A stunningly beautiful place, calm and quiet. Always worth a visit and don't pass the souvenir stalls. Less pushy and kitchy than some other places.

Once more another of the 8 monasteries of Bucovina - that are on the UNESCO world heritage list ... This one is situated near Gura Humorului , just a few km outside of the city, once again not built by king Stephen the great, this monastery was built by the royal chancellor of king Petru Rares - Teodor Bubuiog ...
The main color of this monastery is red - and shades of dark red (Vornoret is blue, Sucevita is green, ... this is red.)
Same thing like with the other monasteries - the paintings on the outside - the world famous paintings are slowly but surely fading - one of the walls is still looking spectacular.
Entrance fee is very pocket friendly, but pay attention -no pictures allowed inside the church.
The tower in the courtyard is also worth a few minutes of attention - to climb to the top platform will be an adventure on itself.
Overall an interesting experience - when you are in Bucovina check it out.

The Monastery and the sorroundings are beautiful. A true marvel of romanian culture, religion and history. We were lucky that we visited it after the easter and 1st of may an so it was not crowded. Its a must see touristic objective.

In front of the monastery lots of souvenirs, but i think lots of them are made in china. Inside was very quiet place and the view from the tower awsome

Built as a triconch church, the architecture of the edifice combines Gothic elements, visible in the shape of doors and windows, with local elements already used before in the painted churches from Bucovina

Definitely don't miss the Humor and Voronets monasteries. These are unique cultural patrimony, and very beautiful. Easy access from Gura Homorului, which is good base for exploring all the Bucovina painted monasteries-- Also don't miss the exceptionally interesting museum of painted eggs Lucia Condrea, five minutes away from the Moldovita monastery: 11,000 painted eggs, a short film about her techniques, gorgeous and another unique place-specific thing to see in this area.

This place has a lot of reviews so I'll keep it short. It's a great, history-packed place that should be definitely visited.
