The blue of Voroneţ
The church of the Monastery of Voronet was built in just a couple of months, in 1488, by Stephen the Great, the most popular prince of Moldavia, after one of his victories against the Ottoman armies. This was a common practice of the prince who promoted an architecture known as the Moldavian style. Exquisite testimonies of their painters’ talent, the frescoes of Voroneţ conserve a centuries-old secret. The distinct Voroneţ blue color is unique in the world, and its composition is almost impossible to replicate today.
