0337 Romania - Gura Humorului

private swap

Romania is a country located at the crossroads of Southeastern and Central Europe, on the Lower Danube, north of the Balkan Peninsula and the western shore of the Black Sea.
The funny map card about Gura Humorului - it is a town in Suceava County, north-eastern Romania.
The town itself is less interesting than Sighisoara or Brasov, but it is very close to the Painted Monasteries of Bucovina, which are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. The scenery around Gura Humorului is very beautiful as well.  
The main reason to come here is to visit two painted monasteries nearby. Voronet Monastery is known for its striking blue color and the depiction of Heaven and Hell. Humor Monastery (Manastirea Humorului) is not as well preserved as Voronet, but it has an impressive guard tower which you can scale for a nice view. 
You can find both monasteries on this map card!!!! :)
