Slide show with 15 images

A step back in time
Romania is home to one of the last peasant civilizations in Europe. This two-centre painting holiday gives us the chance to see the painted churches and villages of Bucovina and the ancient ways of the Saxon villages in rural Transylvania so admired and supported by Prince Charles

Arrival day

Transferring from Cluj, we arrive in the village of Vama in time for dinner.

A green day

The beautiful fortified monastery of Sucevita is dominated by the colour green and nestles harmoniously in the rural landscape

A day in the life of rural Bucovina

A day spent painting around a traditional Bucovinian house and its productive gardens.

Light and land

A peaceful day painting among old farm buildings, people, gentle hills and hayricks that stand like an army guarding this secret land.

A blue day

This monastery of Voronet –often known as the “Sistine Chapel of the East”–features an intense colour known as Voronet blue. We spend the day painting in the magical setting of the quiet courtyard surrounded by frescoes.

Transfer day

Heading for Transylvania we follow part of Jonathan Harker’s fictional route towards the legendary castle of Count Dracula.

Sublime Sighisoara

A quiet day painting in this original medieval town, a world heritage centre, with its network of narrow streets and closely aligned rows of colourful houses.

Living tradition

The beautiful village of Viscri and fortified church immerses us in the 17th century, with its cobbled streets, traditional houses and still-practised rural ways.

Bucolic landscapes

A day in the quiet village of Copsa Mare – village houses, farmland, hayricks and a visit to the famed fortified church of Biertan all provide great subjects for our painters

Departure day

Enjoy a guided tour of Cluj and a delicious restaurant lunch before heading to the airport.

Note: This is a selection of the many options available on this painting holiday in Romania. Weather conditions, group interests and the tutor will influence the final itinerary.
