On the edge of the old town, this tiny but lavishly decorated orthodox church is fascinating both outside and inside. Make sure you get to it!

This little beauty is situated in the center of the old city, in the (of course) Stravapoleos Street. It's a very small serene little church with a little inner court next to it, very nicely decorated but sadly enough a little overshadowed by it's neighboring larger buildings.

This is Bucharest’s oldest church and therefore upholds a lot of value in terms of history. But what impressed me the fact was its well placed location. Midst every chaos of the street, this place stands as an excellent relief and tranquil spot. The church looks amazing and even in its small size has works and history that will truly... More

The inn and the annexes were demolished at the end of the 19th century. It worth at least a... More

A very small and old ortodox church that is still functioning. Here, you can find a little bit of peace listening to the Sunday ceremony.

Just another romanian architecture orthodox church, more known for the fact that the local priest is a big supporter of monarchy. Plus you can say you saw a Bucharest attraction and then hop over 100 yds and get to the Carul cu Bere!
