Very beautiful little church in the old town. Very small inside and dark. There are some old ruins in the garden area. Well worth going for a look if in the area.

The church is worth visiting. It has great architecture and history! The church looks better mid day, because you can see every detail. In the evening or night, it gets more romantic, which is great for the ones who are looking for a romantic walk about in the Old Town.

Came across this little old church tucked away in a side street in the old town whilst en-route to find a bite to eat in one of the nearby restaurants. Sadly couldn't go inside to see the frescos inside as a service was taking place and the church was so full (not hard as it is such a small church)... More

Pretty little church tucked away in a corner. So far this is the best monastery in Bucharest . Interior is painted & interesting too . This is the beginning of the old part of town .

While walking there...trying to find it...in the old town of bucharest...i expected a bigger more impressive building...but i guess what's impressive is the drawings inside the church...that's what makes it special...it should be a part of your walking plan in the old town

If you ever go for lunch at Caru cu Bere and want to visit a touristic attraction nearby, I recommend this one. When we entered, all the noises seemed to fade away, and I could hear only the sounds of birds chirping on the trees right beside me. The inn's objects are old and very interesting and the inside of... More
