A lovely unique little church in the old town of Bucharest! It's so pretty, it looks like it's from a fairytale. I really liked the design and loved taking photos of the outside. Well worth stopping by!

This small Church was originally built in 1724 by Greek -Orthodox monks, and was meant to be a convent church. The style is very Byzantine-Oriental. The church now stands of the corner of a street, surrounded by a fence. It's a beautifully decorated Church, which is certainly worth a visit. It's in the same street as the oldest restaurant of...

An attractive church in the center of Bucharest although I found the Russian and Old Court churches far more atmospheric. Stavropoleos Church is crowded with tourists and almost impossible to photograph without someone getting in the way. You are not allowed to take photos inside. If you want to see an altar with a real wow factor then head to... More

It's a beautiful church, well hidden in the old town. It's really impressive when you find it, and you should enter it, as a lot of town folk go there to mass.

Excellent old, small church worth visiting when visiting Old Town. Even as it's own destination, the church, its garden, architecture, artwork is worth a visit.

before you enter you admire the architecture of the church, once you are inside you are impressed from the wall paintings of figures of saints and icons craftmanship

Very cute little church "monetary" in the heart of the old town. Lovely artwork on the outside of the building and inside. Worth a visit and very close to main park. It is however not the best thing to see in bucharest by a long shot. Not unique in romania anyhow but still why not take 5 mins to visit.... More

Beautiful and interesting. SO much detail on the door, the walls, ceiling, and a beautiful courtyard of columns and statutes.
