It only takes a few minutes to see it, but the architecture and the art inside and outside are worth your time. If you have a guide, it's so much better since you find out more about the church and the culture.

We have discovered this old church/monastery during our visit of the old town and we were amazed of the tranquility and how well it was preserved. Really nice.

Very pretty church and grounds in the city. Good for a quick stop to admire the details of the church. Photos are OK just no flash!

This church is one of the most beautiful places in the Old City and one of the oldest, too. It's been featured in numerous music videos and other local productions but the nuns and the caretaker are always reluctant to allow acces when it comes to photos or videos, as this is still a holy place. Discretion is recomended.

Behind the National History Museum on Calea Victoriei, a small architectural gem. Wonderful stone carved columns at the porch and perfectly proportioned church building. The small cloister on the side of the church is out-of-this-world!

Stavropoleos Monastery is an island of silence in Bucharest old city center, a place where the art and the spirituality are closely linked. Take time and spend some time in the cloister courtyard.
