Car Rental in Suceava

A city loaded with history and culture, Suceava was the throne of the Medieval Principality of Moldavia until the 1565. You can step inside the churches where the princes were crowned and see the unconquerable fortress, they built to repel the Ottomans.

Suceava is also the jumping-off point for trips around the painted monasteries of Bukovina. These are eight UNESCO World Heritage churches with Byzantine architecture and beautiful murals on their outer walls. One is right here in Suceava, while the others will require a drive. But even if you stay put in Suceava there’s lots more to see, like a quaint outdoor village museum opening a window on life in the Bukovina region.

Fortress of Suceava. When the threat from the Ottoman Empire grew large in the 14th century, a line of fortresses was built all over Moldavia. The man behind their construction was Prince Petru II of Moldavia, and the fortress in Suceava was beefed up in the following centuries by his successors. Stephen III added the moat and the present indomitable defensive walls, which stood up to a barrage by Mehmed the Conqueror in the 15th century. But the reason the Fortress of Suceava is in a stage of ruin is because it did finally succumb to the Ottomans in 1675 when a garrison of Polish Cossacks was overwhelmed and the complex was promptly blown up. High on its plateau it endures as a symbol of Moldavian resistance with damaged but menacing walls, and visible remains of the princes’ apartments, storage rooms, a chapel and a great hall for the princely council.

Marginea. While you are monastery-hopping around Bukovina you could plan an hour or two at this village. Marginea has won a reputation for its black clay pottery, and is just a few kilometres northeast of Sucevita Monastery. The fired clay pottery-making technique is claimed to have been passed down from Geto-Dacian tribes 2,000 years ago. Marginea was first put on the map for its ceramics in the 16th-century and has bounced back after owning a potter’s wheel became illegal during communist times.

Cacica Salt Mine. For something out of the ordinary head 40 kilometres west to Cacica where Romania’s best salt is mined. The salt here is re-crystallised from brine and retrieved along tunnels that were first excavated by hand in 1791. There are 8,200 tunnels in all at this gigantic site, some of which are opened up to the public on 2-3-hour tour. It can be a bit unnerving to know that almost 100 metres below your feet there are miners hard at work. But things are even weirder when there’s nobody around: You’ll still be able to go down to look around an Orthodox chapel, Roman Catholic chapel, small man-made lake and, most surprising of all, a ballroom with balconies carved right from the salt.

Hanul Domnesc (Princely Inn). The oldest secular building in Suceava still standing is this inn that can be traced back to the 1600s. Hanul Domnesc was originally the property of Miron Barnovschi, the Lord of Moldavia who donated it to be converted into an inn to entertain members of the court, distinguished merchants and foreign dignitaries. After Moldavia was annexed by the Habsburg Empire in 1775 the building became a hunting lodge for members of the imperial family and the court. Since the 1980s the inn has contained the Bukovina Ethnography Museum if you still have an appetite for the region’s rural history.

Painted Monasteries of Bukovina. A group of Romanian cultural treasures is scattered across the Suceava County. Most require a drive, but none are more than 60 kilometres away. What they all share is spellbinding Byzantine architecture and outside walls that are painted with murals that have kept their vitality since the 16th century. All eight merit your time and can be done on your own steam or on specially arranged tours. But if you have to pick just one if has to be Voronet Monastery, 30 kilometres to the southwest. The paintings at this monastery are still vivid and evoke scenes like the Last Judgment and the Ladder of St John, produced in 1547.
