The National Museum of Bukovina has added to its souvenir offer the zero euro banknote promoting the Fortress of Suceava.
The ticket, which can be purchased for 18 RON (3.6 EUR), was printed in 10,000 copies. It is made of cotton paper, with a secure trust fund and a unique serial number, explained museum director Emil Ursu, as quoted by Suceava News.
Suceava Fortress, erected at the end of the 14th century near the medieval town of Suceava, was the main residence of the rulers of Moldavia for almost 200 years. The ensemble, which includes a castle and defensive walls, was consolidated and refurbished between 2011 and 2015.
The project of zero euro banknotes promoting various tourist sites was launched in 2015. The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom), the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin or the Arc de Triomphe in Paris make part of the sites represented on the zero euro banknotes. .
Five Romanian monuments are featured on these banknotes – the Danube Delta, the Palace of Culture in Iași, the Alba Carolina Fortress, the Bucegi Massif and the Karolyi Castle in Carei.
