While walking through Old Town of Bucharest we were happy to see this Orthodox Church. There is no admission charge, and we were able to enter without a wait. The artwork is spectacular.

It’s a typical Christian Orthodox Church in town center. You can pay a visit to see the church or attend a service.

A very interesting monument in the middle of Bucarest, full of marvelous ancient paintings. The religious spirit is still vivid there!

This church is worth stopping and looking at the architecture and beautiful paintings inside. Much like other Romanian Orthodox churches there is a beautiful altar and paintings on the walls. The outside has the ottoman feeling

An old orthodox church, with very nice frescos on the walls. It has also a small yard. Worth a short visit.

It is set amongst more modern buildings....not new, at least a couple of hundred years old! Very quaint and beautiful.

This is a very beautiful old Orthodox Church. Well worth a little peak inside. Even if you are sick of churches.

This little Orthodox church and the building next to it are all that remains from a monastery that once stood on the site. It is beautifully decorated both inside and out and well worth a look. Inside is a metal plate studded with 12 stones,...More

In middle of old town close to care cu bere restaurant. Hoards of tourist swamp the location which can irritate locals and the nuns when they are obtrusive to daily worship. It is a functioning church, need to have respect for that maintaining discretion.

Beautiful little church with courtyard open to public. No entrance fees; no lines; just a place to soak up some atmosphere, beauty and peace.

Hi, no there is not an entry fee. It is a monastery still functioning as a pilgrimage site, not a monument. No waiting time to enter. I don't know the time scedule, we 've been there around noon and it was open. I hope... More
