Sucevita Monastery near Suceava in Romania

From the 1400s and 1500s, these monasteries have their entire outside walls covered in paintings although some have now faded due to exposure to the elements. A mixture of Moldavian and Byzantine architecture, the pictures feature a combination of biblical related scenes and important historic events. This is Sucevita Monastery. .
