Voronet Monastery is a painted inside and outside monastery located in the town of Gura Humorului , Moldavia, Romania. It is one of the famous painted monasteries from southern Bukovina , in Suceava County. It was built by Stephen III of Moldavia ( known as “Stephen the Great “in 1488 to commemorate the victory at Battle of Vaslui.
This wonderful monastery is often known as the “Sistine Chapel of the East, “the frescoes at Voronet feature an intense shade of blue known as “Voronet Blue”. The exterior walls – including a representation of the Last Judgement and the west wall – were painted in 1547 with a background of vivid cerulean blue. This blue is so vibrant that art historians refer to Voronet Blue the same way they do Titian red. The church is one of the Painted churches of northern Moldavia listed in UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites.
