View to our Casa Eden. We liked the food and that the barbecue was available for the guests. Goodbye Costinești.

On our way to the North, we stopped by the Mausoleum of Mărășești.

The Mausoleum of Mărășești is a memorial site in Romania containing remains of 5073 Romanian soldiers and officers killed in the First World War and dedicated to the commemoration of the Battle of Mărășești and Romanian Army members who were killed during World War I.

The Battle of Mărășești (August 6 to September 8, 1917) was a battle fought during World War I between the German Empire and the Kingdom of Romania. The two sides sent into battle a total of about 1 million soldiers.

The monument, among the most important in Europe, was built between 1923 and 1938, according to the plans of the architects George Cristinel and Constantin Pomponiu.

Our next stop was Probota Monastery - Mănăstirea Probota.

Petru Rares built Probota monastery not far from the ruins of the old monastery and decided to be painted in 1532. The architecture and the painted frescoes from the inside and the outside are the expression of exceptional value of the Moldavian medieval art.

While me and Bronco were waiting outside, Nada enjoyed her moments with Mirko.


The Restoration of Cultural Heritage of Probota Monastery took place between 2018 and 2020.

For the final sightseeing trip of the day we chose the Saint John the New Monastery - Mănăstirea Sfântul Ioan cel Nou.

Saint John the New Monastery construction began during the reign of voivode Bogdan III the One-Eyed of Moldavia, after the nearby Mirăuți Church (the metropolitan cathedral of Moldavia at that moment) was devastated in 1513. The construction was completed by Stephen IV of Moldavia (also known as Ștefăniță).

Traces of mural painting have been preserved on the southern side of the Church of Saint George.

Clisiarnitsa-chapel was built between 1626-1629, in the north-eastern part of the monastery premises. The building had the role of a winter chapel.

The church was frescoed in the Byzantine style both inside and outside.

We placed the tent somewhere in the forest outside Suceava and Bronco was immediately ready for a nap.
