A must see!

Amazing place which you can't just walk past! If you do, you're stupid. Located in Centrul Vecchi not far from the restaurant Caru Cu Bere.

I have been here with friends during a function... you can breath the historical of it. Very very small, the only issue you must be lucky to found it open If open do not loose the chance to visit

It is, in fact, a small monastery right in the middle of the busy touristic borough of Bucharest. Besides the fact that it is an architectural jewel, it is utterly amazing how you get in the garden and all the sudden you are in an oasis of calm, while outside all is hectic.

Its a cute orthodox church, with a patio... Its really small, but full of details... It worth a visit if you are near, but I wouldn't cross the city just to visit it...

Very beautiful, worth visiting. The decorations are amazing. And why not having a dinner at the restaurant right across the street? Be sure you book in advance though.

An old site, full with history, it's definitely a place one must visit. It is run by nuns, the country yard looks very nice and also some historical relics. Pay your tribute to God in the church then have a moment of peace and quietnes in the court, and afterwords you can continue your old city center tour.

A pretty-as-a-picture - or should that be icon? - church still run by monks. Gloriously Orthodox bells, smells and painitngs in side.Well worth a visit.
