The smallest of the famous four, this place is remarkable as much for the ambiance as for the painted church.
The paintings on the outside here are perhaps the most faded of all.
Sun and vandalism have spared only the frescoes higher up on the northern wall. Here they seem to show a melding of Asian and Gothic styles.
When Jimmy Carter visited Romania during his presidency, he came to see Moldovita and their museum, swamped by Japanese tourists when we were there.
The warmth and pleasure one feels from visiting Moldovita stem as much from the quaint fortifications,
and the touches of cottage garden as from their famous frescoes.
For those who can't resist the lure of these idyllic living arrangements,
from potted plants,
to low-tech solutions to the desire for running water,
turns out the sisters run their own bed and breakfast.
