There are plenty of reasons to visit Bukovina: if you love history and culture or if you simply like good food and want to relax in the middle of the beautiful landscapes.

Fortunately there are many other places with these strengths in Romania, but Bukovina has additionally the monasteries and churches that have made the area famous all over the world. Let's not forget also the obvious Austrian influence, which gives the "last hint" to the local Moldovan peculiarity. Even the name Bucovina - comes from the German beech country (Buchenland).

Not at leats, Bucovina has a calming effect on travellers, recharging them with energy and bringing them closer to divinity.

So, come to us and see for yourself that great region!

Explore the traditional Bucovina

As in Maramures, tourism in Bukovina has an important traditional component thanks to the numerous monasteries. This makes Bucovina an ideal destination for families or for a quiet vacation with children. However, at certain times of the year (Easter or Christmas) it can get very crowded.

A route of monasteries can start in the north in Putna, go down to Moldovița, Sucevița, Arbore, with obligatory stops in Humor and Voroneț monasteries; then cross the border with Bukovina in Neamț and end in Agapia and Văratec. Considering the distances, it is recommended to cover the route by own/rented car or caravan. The Via Transilvanica trail also connects the first 3 places, so travelers can hike or bike the trails (in stages) - with family or friends.

A custom from Bucovina that has become famous far beyond the borders of Romania is egg baking. If you visit Bukovina around Easter, you will surely have the opportunity to attend a special workshop.

Outdoor Bucovina - hiking, biking, glamping or rafting

Via Transilvanica has started a new stage of outdoor tourism in the region by marking hiking trails in the Bucovina region. While not so long ago nature lovers mainly chose the hiking trails in the Rarău-Giumalău or Suhard Mountains, in recent years it has become possible to hike or bike through the beautiful beech forests of the submontane area. Also, many local inns accept backyard camping as they encourage backpacking.

If you're looking for slightly more upscale tent accommodations, don't miss the Bucovina glamping site in the village of Crucea. The resort organizers also offer rafting or kayaking tours on the Bistrita River.

Do not hesitate to take a rafting/kayaking tour on the Bistrița in August in the village of Ciocănești. In the past the wood was transported on huge rafts, nowadays the locals transport the tourists instead of the wood.

A must-see in Bucovina is also the Transrarăul, the most beautiful (paved) road in the region. It's a favourite with motorcyclists, a challenge for cyclists, but also a route with numerous viewpoints, or places from which you can climb to sights such as Pietrele Doamnei or Rarău peak.

The resort of Vatra Dornei is locally famous for its thermal waters. Today, Vatra Dornei is one of the most important destinations in Bucovina for spa treatments, but also for mountaineering and downhill and cross-country skiing.
