We enjoyed viewing the frescos inside. The church, however, is not very large, and we did not have much information to put any of what we saw into context.

A tiny church, but stunning. The interior is wonderfully painted and the courtyard outside was peaceful and relaxing. This church may be smaller than those around it, but it was the one that impressed me the most. You don't need much time for a visit here, but don't skip it.

The outside of the church is strikingly different from its surrounding buildings and the inside is stunningly beautiful.

The Stavropoleos church is one of my favorite chuches in Bucharest - actually it´s also one of the smallest but that makes it really special. Inside the curch you can find pretty old and really nice frescoes. It´s a little bit dark inside but that´s totally fine. Right next to the church is a monastery where some sisters stay. if... More

We expected to see a huge basilica but in fact it's really small. We were there at Sunday and as there isn't a lot of place inside people were standing outside praying.

Beautiful garden inside the yard, very well preserved, it takes you back in time. It's a must visit in the Old Town, day or night.

This church is so lovely and relaxing. Spend some time here and soak in the atmosphere. Too many churches were destroyed to build the monster, the House of Parliament. Thankfully this one survived.

It is hard to find, but the paintings and icons are unique in bucharest and more reminiscent of the Bucovina area. It is definitely worth the effort to find and was a highlight of our visit to Bucharest.

A very nice and quiet place to escape the business of the big city. The courtyard contains a lot of (head)stones from destroyed churches around the city, but is also very nicely decorated and is a good place to sit down and enjoy the silence. The small church interior is certainly worth a look. Our guide told us they are... More
