Breakfast in the morning.
Check-out around 09-10:00am and leave the hotel/pension to discover the surroundings in our last day in Bukovina.
We will begin our today's visits with Putna Monastery - first and one of the most important monastic center in Moldavia, built between 1466 and 1481 by Stephen the Great, following his victory over the Turks at Chilia.
Next stop will be at the Marginea Black Pottery workshop, in Marginea village. The black pottery produced here is known internationally, mainly due to its black color obtained following an ancient burning technique. Marginea became a pottery center somewhere in the 16th century, when the ceramics was mainly crafted for food storage or other purposes. Still preserved to this day, this beautiful old craft offers tourists all around the world the opportunity to witness the art of making black ceramic items and bring truly unique souvenirs back home.
After that, if time permits us (depending on your departure schedule), we can also visit Patrauti Church (built by Stephan the Great in 1487, being the smallest of all his churches and monasteries and the only one destined to be a nun monastery, a "sanctuary for soldiers injured in wars"), Dragomirna Monastery (the tallest monastery in Bukovina, built on a breathtakingly monumental scale), ending with the Princely Fortress of Suceava; the fortress was built at the end of the 14th century, near Suceava medieval city, being the main residence of Moldavia's rulers for almost 200 years.
Along our day, there will be stops for lunch (optional). In the evening, dinner, then we say Goodbye!
