One of the cultural attractions that I have visited with Uncover Romania Tours. The information provided by the guide was with plenty of detail and very interesting. Great monument in the heart of Bucharest

It is placed in Old City, the building, the paintings, the garden inside offer a moment of amazing grace....in the middle of the noisy town, you can take a time of silence and peace

This little church is a jewelery hidden in the noizzy old center. Declared an architectural monument, its beauty can be equaled only by the peace u can find in this small corner of spirituality. The old stones, the carving, the flowers, everything about this place is just wonderful. Ideal to take a fresh breath of spirituality before getting ready for... More

I like to visit churches, at different towns to where I go. Not because I'm religious, but because they are usually interesting pieces of history. If you are in Bukarest, go to this place, even better if you go with a guide. Get someone to explain this beautiful church to you. Such a tiny little place, with so much to... More

Deeply rich envelope of Eastern Orthodoxy in the heart of Old Town Bucharest. Charming courtyard, relaxing and meditative.

If you go to Bucharest, this is an amazing place to visit. It has it all...tranquility, spirituality, architecture, history, and if you are lucky enough a glimpse of a romanian wedding...if you are there on a saturday, of course ;). Enjoy!
