We found ourselves at the monastery early Sunday morning when serving Holy Liturgy. It was magic .The church was full of people and we enjoyed the time at the small , sheltered courtyard considering the frescoes, listening to the tunes of monks.

We went on an organised tour for the opening of a private corkscrew museum which housed over 4000 antique flat irons, including Victorian steam iron and some 20,000 antique corkscrews including the Worlds most expensive which was bought this year at an Essex auction house for over £45,000

With its pretty architecture and brightly coloured inner walls, it is quite a special little church in bucharest.

Lovely old church in the heart of the old town, great place to stop for some peace and quiet in the heat of the day. The church is also visited on the free walking tour.

A small church in the center of Bucharest with free enter and beautiful old wall paintings. It also has a little cozy patio. As for me, it is a little hidden treasure.

The church is a beautiful illustration of the byzantine Romanian architecture. Impressive murals even though they are degraded. Very quiet place, a good place for resting your soul (participation to daily service recommended).

Stavropoleos Church (Biserica Stravrapoleos), it is a small and delicate church which deserves a short visit, a small spiritual treasure in the heart of the old Bucharest center. Fine wall peintures, byzantine architecture, small and pittoresque courtyard/cloitre. Very close to famous restaurant "Caru cu bere". Don't hesitate to visit, I strongly recommend you.
