We added Stavropoleos Church to our list of must-see places in Bucharest based upon the images we saw of the exterior online. Pictures just don't do it justice. As you round the corner from either direction, the site just looks like a beautiful oasis among the buildings. Even our small children were awe-struck by the church's interior. We expected that...

The inside of this little church is beautifully adorned. Outside of the monastery in the courtyard are very old headstones that have been saved and are lined along a wall. Easy to get to - a must while in old town.

Do not miss this. The atmosphere in the church is a world away from modern Bucharest and even the old town that surrounds it. The amazing frescoes will keep your eyes peeled on them for a long while.

Not just the church but also the monastery forming a very nice small site. The church is attractive with mosaic like features externally and is quite stunning internally with its painting of the walls and particularly the domes ceiling. The grounds themselves are also quite pleasant.

I have visited many churches in my travels but no quite so quaint and as beautiful as this one. The architecture is stunning! It is situated right in the middle of the old town and you cannot help but look in awe at its beauty. The gardens are well kept and it is the perfect place to take photos. Inside... More

In such a busy city like Bucharest to find a little quiet and peaceful place can be hard, especially in the heart of the city. This little church will be a breath of fresh air, inner peace and history.
