We will begin with Voronet, the most famous of all, known as the Sistine Chapel of the orthodoxy in Eastern Europe. It features the best preserved Last Judgment fresco of the East. One of the monastery nuns will explain the symbols of the exterior paintings of Voronet. The monastery is also known for the famous Voronet “blue”, a shade which is unique in the world (its composition has been kept secret for centuries).
