We will start from Suceava, former capital of Moldavia and nowdays "the capital" of suthern Bucovina, we will visit the moldavian monastery of Agapia with its 300 nuns and their lovely workshops: handmade rugs, weaving and icon painting. After Agapia monastery we will start climbing the Eastern (Oriental) Carpathians mountains on a road which slices Bicaz Gorge, where 300 meters (1000 ft,) of limestone rocks are towering the narrow road and create one of Romania's most spectacular landscapes.
