Wallpaper Description:
Sucevita Monastery is an Eastern Orthodox convent situated in the Northeastern part of Romania. It was built in 1585.
The architecture of the church contains both Byzantine and Gothic elements, and some elements typical to other painted churches of northern Moldavia. Both interior and exterior walls are covered by mural paintings, which are of great artistic value and depict biblical episodes from the Old and New Testament. The paintings date from around 1601, which makes Sucevita one of the last monasteries to be decorated in the famous Moldavian style of exterior paintings.
In 2010, the monastery has been inscribed by UNESCO on its list of World Heritage Sites.

Love that you included the history on this - it is so beautiful! An artist could not have painted it more beautifully than it already is! Extraordinary.
