The seven churches in northern Moldavia are a unique phenomenon in the cultural heritage of Europe. They are remarkable for the frescoes covering their exterior walls. These frescoes, created in 15th and 16th centuries are not just wall decoration but paintings representing whole stories of different religious plots. Their elegant outline and harmonious colours blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape. The churches are recognized masterpieces of Byzantine art.
