As you enter, you can advance near the external niche beautifully painted in a style that is rare /unique in this region. The inside painting is nice as well and you can see the founder, Luca Arbore boyar.

The painted churches of Bucovina are world-famous. Each one has its charm, but Arbore is special because the XVI Century painter who did the interior of the church had just come back from a trip to Florence. Thus, whereas all seven other Bucovina UNESCO World...More
