Why Suceava?

Just like that ... why Suceava?

Maybe only for the sake of the beech tree woods that shadow your path. It is there where you can lose your way and be happy like a child. The woods will make you come back to the basic joys of your existence.
            Or ... maybe because it is only there where you can see a peasant on his land ploughing with his horse; you can remember how your grandfather used to cut the grass with his scythe or how he used to bind pieces of wood to make a tub. You can meet flocks of sheep or carts with hay.
            Watch out your way because stags and deers often cross the road.
You are free to photograph the wedding pomp that you might meet along the way. They are genuine artistic shows presenting traditional costumes.
            Don’t be shy and agree to have a glass of "rachiu" (traditional spirits) from somebody you don’t know. He would offer it with love, joy and friendship, showing the characteristic Bucovinean hospitability

*Mind you don`t forget your camera at home. Your photo album will reward you for the effort to have travelled there.
