Patrauti - "Cavalcade of All Saints"


Church of the Holy Rood of Patrauti    



The church of Patrauti has the oldest original interior paintings in Moldavia and was founded by prince Stephen the Great in 1487 as nunnery, close to Moldavia's capital Suceava, where his injured soldiers could be healed after their endless battles.

This little charming church is symbolic for the Moldavian style in architecture and it is famous especially for one of the interior paintings, "The Cavalcade of the Saints".

Arriving here, you'll have the nice surprise to meet Father Gabriel, a real encyclopedia of the history and religious art of Moldavia.
