The medieval monastic complex Voronet Monastery was built in the former Voronet village, which became part of Gura Humorului in 2005. The church, built by Prince Stephen the Great, was built in 1488 in only 3 months and 3 weeks.

The small church, composed of the porch, the pronaos and the nave, is painted from the ground up to the eaves, both inside and outside. In 1490 Voroneț set up a script for the copying of liturgical books and a school for the education and education of children of boyars and priests, to become copiers of books, priests or teachers.

Interior painting of the church dates from 1496, from the time of Stefan cel Mare. The exterior painting dates from the time and after the reign of Petru Rareș, being a jewel of Moldavian feudal art. In 1547 the church was extended to the west with a closed porch restrained on the counter.

This unprecedented solution allowed for the realization of a monumental painting representing the Last Judgment, presented in the form of a peaceful holiday, lacking nightmares. The frescoes have a vivid coloring made on a blue background, known as "Voroneț Blue".

The paint produced based on a secret prescription was based on azurite mineral, particularly resistant to meteorological phenomena. Azurite is extracted from the mountains of China, France and Africa. For other colors, mineral, natural or synthetic pigments were used.

In order to protect the interior painting, candles and church services were totally forbidden. To protect the exterior painting, the roof eaves was enlarged. In the porch of the church was buried the Metropolitan Grigore Rosca, and in the narthex was the son Daniil. Voroneț Monastery is a historical monument from 1918 and since 1993 it has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
