Romania's painted monasteries near Suceava

From the 1400s and 1500s, these monasteries have their entire outside walls covered in paintings although some have now faded due to exposure to the elements. A mixture of Moldovian and Byzantine architecture, the pictures feature a combination of biblical related scenes and important historic events. This is the virtuous ladder at Sucevita Monastery.
