Princely Church and Court in Piatra Neamţ

Inherited from Prince Ştefan cel Mare, built between 1468 and 1475, it
represents a genuine effigy of nobility. The harmony of shapes and
exterior decorations, the inconspicuous monumentality, the complex
fully illustrates the beauty of the Moldavian architecture during Ştefan
cel Mare’s rule. The 19 m-high belfry was erected in 1499 and has
become iconic for the town. From up there, visitors can enjoy almost a
bird’s-eye view of Piatra Neamţ and the Bistrita Valley.
