The big attraction for the tourists who appreciate beauty is represented by the churches built by the rulers of Moldavia four, five centuries ago; they have a special style, the Moldavian style, where the elements of Byzantine and Gothic inspiration were filtered by the creativity of the local builders and painters. The middle ages Moldavian art is characterized by the exterior painting that dresses the churches from the basis to the cornice in biblical scenes that still have, even nowadays, the bright and warm colors. The mountain area of the North of Moldavia is made up of the famous long mountain ranges with peaks:: Obcina Voronetului, Obcina Mare, Curmatura and Obcina Feredeului with approximate heights between 800-1000 m, only one peak Pascanul from Obcina Feredeului reaching 1483m.


The Moldovita commune lies in the Moldovitei Valley tributary of the Moldova river close to the town of Vama valley that separates Obcina Mare from Obcina Feredeului, gathering all the streams and all the forest roads from its slopes. The scenery in this area is calm, but still has a surprising poetry, with an unidentified magic that comes out of the mix of green with the discreet presence of farms discretely spread, surrounded by zigzag fences and highlighted by the haystacks. The commune has 6000 inhabitants and comprises several satellite villages: Demacusa, Putna Secries, Rasca and Argel. The main occupations of the inhabitants are the animals, the wood exploitation and processing, as well as agro-tourism.
