Black Church from the hill on top of town

There is this little spot up in the Northern part of Romania just south of the border to Ukraine which is famous for some painted monasteries. I actually really want to go but as it is far from where I am now it will involve a very long journey to get there and an equally long journey to get back to Bucharest - is this really worth it?

                              

Well first step is to figure out when there is actually a connection to Suceava. The way to figure this out would in the bad old days have been to get all the way to the trains station on the opposite end of town taking a bus there and a bus back - hours would be spend in the process.

Guess what this is the White Tower
Today well the Romanian Railways got an English language homepage. Ok the front page is in English and then when you hit the link timetable everything is in Romanian but you can kind of figure out the first town most be where you are and the second should be your destination - and the dates is fairly easy to figure out as well. I can't help but wonder whatever people used to do in the old days - go to the train station - been there done that.

 

Well it turn out there is only one train a day and it leave a bit after 23 at night. I am not gonna be on the train tonight so I might as well sleep on it until tomorrow. And figure out if I want to stay in Transylvania or go all the way up to Southern Bucovina.
