The best thing to do is to walk around and explore. Bucharest is full of surprise. The traffic is noisy and it could be difficult to cross the roads, also it's not very well sign posted.

Lovely historic monastery near center of Bucharest. If possible go on a Sunday; it'll be very crowded but the music and pageantry are worth it. Please be respectful of the worshipers. Stand in back, don't block others.

Monastery is tucked away behind a main street of modern buildings - we accidentally found it but what a find - the architecture was almost Ottoman and the place was so peaceful obviously an important religious centre for some Romanians.

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
