Spreading down from the Carpathian Mountains over both Romania and the Ukraine, these green pastured hills protect many medieval churches and monasteries known for their frescos painted inside and out depicting, primarily, the lives of the saints, like a pictorial bible. Best travelled on foot over ancient pilgrims paths.
