Wooden churches of Neamţ County

24 July 2020 No Comment

In Neamţ County, a large number of old wooden churches have been preserved, the one in Văleni – Piatra Neamţ dating back from the 16th century. The beauty of the wood and the specific decoration techniques give an appearance of both monumentality and natural simplicity, of great harmony and perfection to these churches. The beautiful wooden churches in Neamţ County appear in front of the contemporary traveler as anachronistic architectural forms, teleported from the past, as a testimony of an ancient way of life and religious feeling. Anyone who enters such a place is overwhelmed by the mirage of the place, getting lost in thoughts about the spiritual beliefs of the many generations of believers who found their purpose and peace.” –  ©  Elena FLORESCU, Marina SABADOS, Cornel MIFTODE – “Old wooden churches in Neamț County”, C.M.IMAGO Publishing House Piatra Neamț, 2012.
