Voronet Monastery was built in 1488 in record time: three months, three weeks and three days, today being part of the UNESCO heritage. The exterior murals have preserved their hues despite centuries of inclement weather, but the ingredients used in preparing the paints are still a mystery. The scenes in the murals depict, like a movie, the history of Christianity, presented in an original manner, very much influenced by folk beliefs, by the Eastern culture, but also by the Orthodox thought. Humor Monastery - Red hues dominate the exterior frescoes showing scenes from the Lives of Saints, as well as significant moments form the locals’ lives, such as the wars with the Turks. In the tidy and flower-filled courtyard, silence reigns; the nuns here seem to live a life that is completely separated from the agitation outside the walls, a life that hasn’t changed in centuries.
Moldovita Monastery, included in the UNESCO heritage in 1993, was built between 1532 and 1537. For hundreds of years, the murals were the only way uneducated country dwellers could learn about the teachings of the Bible. The frescoes are an immense colour illustration of Biblical scenes, adapted to the history of the place and to the important moments in the life of the community.
Marginea Black Pottery - In Northern Romania, the Dacian pottery tradition is carried on by a handful of craftsmen who manufacture black ceramic, according to an atypical process. The pottery made here is famous worldwide, shaped by hand by the craftsmen, fired and then polished, also by hand. The black color of the vessels is due to the firing process.
