“Listen to the nins sing”
Reviewed May 16, 2013


Every morning and evening at 18:00 (changes in winter) the 5 nuns that are managing there monastery are praying and they sing, the church is one of the oldest in Bucharest and almost all tourist visit it since it is in Lipscani but very few come at 18:00 to hear them sing it is very intimate ceremony

“Small but beautifull”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

It's very small but is absolutly charming and most of all: authentic! It was a monastery church an it had a small inn around. Now it is still a monastery. I think that is the most beautifull church in Bucharest. It still look like XVIII Bucharest Church.

“An oasis in the city”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

It is hard to believe that this little church is not even 50meters from the craziest part of the city in the OLd Town. The church, cloisters and gardens are a quiet place to collect your thoughts and consider the sins of the night before. The stone monuments in the gardens are emnants of an old church which stood across Calae Victorie on the site of the curent CEC building. Well worth taking a moment.
