The paper presents conservation works conducted at the monastery in Probata (Rumania) within the UNESCO programme. The author of this paper had an opportunity to participate in these works in July and August 1999. The UNESCO project aimed to conserve the wall paintings, renovation of the church and the walls as well as conduct archaeological excavations, which could provide an illustration of the area stratigraphy. Not only did the author work on the wall paintings inside the church, but also she was involved in the conservation of exterior paintings so typical of the churches in this area, i.e. Bukowina. The most fundamental conservational operations performed there included the reconstruction of architectural elements, disinfections, the preservation of powdering layers of paint, and the removal of secondary whitewash and plasters. Other works involved pasting bubbles in the groundcoat layers, cleaning polychrome layers and removing overpaints, and graining out, etc. The last stage aimed to integrate painting layers tonally. Thorough graphic, photographic and descriptive documentation has been recorded, which enables continual cooperation between changing teams conducting the conservation.
