Magnificent decorated Easter eggs from the Bukovina
The Bukovina (land of beech trees) is a part of South East Europe. The northern part bestrides (or: extends over) the Ukraine and the southern one Rumania.
The Rumanian Bukovina is famous for its monasteries of Moldova. This is a variety of Romanian Orthodox monasteries, which were built in the 15th and 16th century in the former Principality of Moldova. Many of these monasteries are known for their murals on the walls. Today some of them belong to the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
Here in these mountains is the origin of the
tradition of brilliant coloured Easter eggs.
