Autumn is considered by many the best season of the year. How come?

The temperatures are still mild (not too hot, not too cold), nature is inviting for exploration and the entire atmosphere seems to be more calm and tranquil.

Of course, it all comes down to your preferences and everything in this matter is subjective, thus we can’t generalize. Nonetheless, we can’t deny the spectacle of color that is surrounding us with every step we take. The falling leaves are quite spectacular. The carpet of colorful leaves can impress simple people and experienced artists.

In October, the mountain areas are truly exquisite. The Carpathians have something unique about them, especially locations that remained wild without human interference. Civilization and modern facilities are indeed very handy for our day to day activities, but in certain areas, its best that we leave nature do its work without our meddling.  It is also great for the environment if we protect areas with dense forests with diverse flora and fauna. We should respect nature every single day!

5 beautiful destinations to visit in Bukovina this autumn

For our holidays, we are seeking places with a relaxing atmosphere, close to nature, with the vibrant glow of traditions in the air. Bukovina has exactly that and even more. Many people consider this land to be the heart of Moldova, as here you will find preserved dozens of medieval constructions (fortresses, churches, monasteries and so on). On top of that list, you can add many charming customs, preserved thoroughly for hundreds of years.

During festivities, Bukovina is a real sight for sore eyes. Everybody is dressed in the national port, preparing for celebration: singing, dancing, going to church and cooking amazing goodies. Tourists love the local cuisine and some of the dishes here cannot be replicated not even in the fanciest restaurants. There must be a secret ingredient that is used particularly in Bukovina! 

In October, the farmers are thoroughly getting ready to collect the rich crops of the land. Grapes, apples, plums and another plethora of fruits and vegetables are carefully picked and prepared for cooking or storage. Wine, jams and other preserved goodies are the main occupations of the people in rural areas. And the wine in Bukovina certainly tastes delicious! It would be a real shame not to indulge yourself with at least a glass of red or white wine.

Nonetheless, besides the incredibly delicious food and beverages, in Bukovina, there are many touristic attractions with considerable historical and cultural value. Thus, they are worthy of your attention. Here are at least 5 places that you should visit in Bukovina this autumn:

Voronet Monastery, or the “Sistine Chapel of the East”. It was given this nickname, due to the beautiful frescos painted on the walls. They depict various scenes from the Bible with the main focus on Judgement Day. Blue is the dominant color and experts can’t replicate this shade not even in modern times. Such elements only add value to this beautiful construction.

Another monastery that is worthy of your attention is Humor. This is another of Bukovina’s painted religious constructions and despite its age (built in the 15th century) it continues to impress visitors. The dominant color here is red and the walls are also painted carefully, following religious symbolism.

Suceava Fortress. This is a beautiful touristic objective that should be included on your list. It couldn’t hurt to visit the city of Suceava as well since this is one of the main access points in Bukovina. This medieval fortress still manages to hold her ground and it is impressive from an architectural point of view. Massive blocks of stone were put together to create the defensive walls of the fortresses. They can be admired even in the present day!

Besides beautiful historical buildings, there are some pretty beautiful mountain resorts in Bukovina where you could spend a couple of days. Durau and Vatra-Dornei are excellent examples. These are two small mountain villages but deeply endeared by tourists. Life here will seem pretty simple and straightforward, but that is where the real beauty lies. 

The locals look content, fulfilled and at peace. It’s quite delightful to sip a cup of coffee at a small cafe, where the owner is friendly and very welcoming. At times, you’ll have the impression that you’re visiting your grandparents, as they will continue to serve you food and delicious drinks. 

In other words, Bukovina is a wonderful destination to spend your vacation. If you are seeking to escape the constantly agitated rhythm of the city, then finding a quiet and charming resort in the mountains is the best option. Nonetheless, getting there can turn out to be a little challenging (especially if you don’t have a good car by your side).
