if you're lucky enough to get there early in the morning on the day of a special service. A handful of nuns are singing to accompany the service. One of the older of them is apparently singing in Romanian, but it was not easily distinguishable...More

Through the frescoes decorating it, both inside and outside, the Humor Monastery (1535) joins the Voronet, Arbore, Moldovita, Sucevita and Probota Monasteries and represents the Romanian art from the 15th-16th centuries.
