Restoration work is underway on damaged 15th and 16th century Byzantine frescoes at the monasteries of Bucovina. The monasteries are listed as world heritage monuments by UNESCO: "The paintings represent complete cycles of religious murals on all facades. Their outstanding composition, elegant outline and harmonious colors blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape."
