With their painted exterior walls, decorated with 15th- and 16th-century frescoes that are considered masterpieces of Byzantine art, these seven churches in northern Moldavia are unique in Europe. Far from being merely wall decorations, the paintings represent complete cycles of religious murals on all facades. Their outstanding composition, elegant outline and harmonious colours blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape.

Would the churches of Moldovia be a good thing to do for a project on Romania?

I have to do a project on Romania for school and I am making a model of something impotant in Romania. I was wondering if the Churches would be a good thing to use?
