This is a beautiful church and a must-see on your trip to Bucharest. The interior is spectacular. A stop here is well worth it.

The church is the oldest religious building in Bucharest, having been built in 1559, still in original condition and I have to say the condition is good!

Very pretty church to visit, especially from the outside. The inside is quite small but has some interesting paintings. Located within the old town, its worth a short visit.

Beautifully restored and in apparent perfect condition, this basilica shows the intersection of Byzantine and European religion.

Very imposing church in Curtea Veche. Beautifully painted and well-maintained. I did not have the chance to see mass here, it would have been a nice experience. There is an underground bookstore too, but not as good as you'd expect.

Very beautiful inside and out, a platform of garden in the courtyard. This is a place to worship, pray, and peaceful relaxation.

it's a 20 min walk, the easiest way would be to follow Calea Victoriei (the main street of your hotel) to the South, and right to the end of it you have to take left on French Street
