A very small church that can only take a few visitors at a time. It is free to visit and full of stunning murals that have been impressively well preserved over time. There is a lovely little courtyard outside that will only rake a few minutes to stroll around but you can see lots of relics and old grave headstones.

Right in the middle of the old Bucharest (Centrul Vechi = Old Centre) is this church located. Gorgeous architecture, mesmerizing atmosphere. There is a beautiful tranquillity despite the big noise on the streets around the church...

Right in the heart of Old Town, this tiny and lovely church, dating back to 1724, makes a lasting impression. The courtyard is filled with tombstones and an ornate wooden interior designed by Romanian architect Ion Mincu and restored recently back to its 1899 grandeur. The interior of the church is breathtaking with original frescoes on the walls and ceilings.No... More

Three hundred years of religious life in a nutshell. Marvelous architecture. A functional nun's monastery.

In the old city center there is this full of history place that you might as well miss. If you enter, there is a peaceful state that will get to you. The church is very nice, but quite dark...but the backyard is gorgeous. You feel like you enter in a different world. Better to visit in summer when flowers are... More

very nice and well preserved old Romanian church, original painting. it is build respecting the Brancovenesc architecture. It is worth listening to the chore during the prayers. They are still singing the traditional byzantine music
