Bucovina

Bucovina – one of the best destinations to celebrate Easter in Romania. Famous for beautiful painted monasteries, Bucovina will surprise you with great food and old traditions.
One of the most representative Easter traditions in Bucovina is the painting and decoration of the eggs, a beautiful custom, and a veritable form of art transmitted from one generation to the next.

In the Black Thursday women dye the eggs, bake Pasca (traditional Easter bread), and in the evening, everyone goes to church. On Saturday night, all churches are filled with crowds who come to take “Lumina” (light). After the religious service, they all leave the church with lit candles.
