Dragomirna Monastery, code LMI SV-II-a-A-05577. A monument of international value located 12 km from Suceava.
The monastery was founded by Anastasie Crimca (1560-1629), the creator of the school of calligraphy and illuminated manuscripts from Dragomirna.
Rectangular in plan, the monastery church is divided into a porch, narthex, nave and altar.
