Easily the nicest church we saw in bucharest. The courtyard is lovely and an oasis of calm in the middle of the city.

One of the most charming small churces I have ever been in. It is tucked away in the old town but definitely worth a visit. Covered in Frescos and also has a lovely courtyard.

A jewel of an old church, it tells one a lot about the history of these places.It's small and dark, but it talks heaps to a good listener, one interested in the past.

Such a jewel, a tiny jewel in the heart of the old city. Part of a monastery of nuns, and the truest feeling of the old world. The walls and ceiling are covered entirely with original murals, the doors are heavily carved, and the architecture is stunning.

That church is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever been to. Romanians must be proud of it. The inside walls are very beautiful, everything is majestic and gorgeous.
