Dragomirna Monastery



 

In the proximity of Sucheava, the church in Dragomirna was erected in 1602. With its 42 meters on vertical and only 9,6 meters width, the church is the highest in Moldavia Region, and extremely narrow, that gives an uncommon elegance. The plan of the building, a prolonged rectangle, had provided a sole polygonal apse to the west, the Gothic windows raise the gaze to the tower, adorned with geometrical and plant motifs.
