Less than 50 km away from Gura Humorului you can visit the Moldoviţa Monastery and in less than an hour and a half drive you can reach the Suceviţa and Putna Monasteries.

Besides the historical sights, the tourist resort of Gura Humorului is a true oasis of relaxation through the Ariniş Recreation Complex, which houses an indoor swimming pool of Olympic size but also a swimming pool with outdoor pool and children’s swimming pool.

If you are an active person, you will be delighted with the numerous options in the area for practicing various sports, from winter (skiing on the “Şoimul” slope and even skating in “Ariniş” Complex ) to extreme variants of off-road or moutain tours bike, brought to competitive position within the Bucovina MTB Marathon.

For a stay of several days, we also recommend visiting Suceava, 35 km away, where you will be delighted by Suceava’s newly-restored Citadel of Suceava, as well as the other cultural and religious objectives of Suceava.
