The fortified ensemble of Dragomirna church was built from 1602 to 1609. Built in the Moldavian style it stands out with its the solid and original appearance that gives it a unique elegance.
Within its fortifications you will discover the big church, the hermitage, the monks’ cells, the chapel and also the five towers of the fortification. The medieval frescoes, the floral motives and the exterior bas reliefs are so charming that the tourists will find themselves hopelessly fascinated by the serenity created by these elaborate architectural details.
