I have been to this church several times. It is very well taking care of both outside and inside. The paintings inside the church are really pretty and the the entire church is fairly bright. Ideal if you want to take pictures.

Located close to Unirii Square, this cathedral is one of the famous in Bucharest and one of the most beautiful. The entrance is on the opposite side from the boulevard. The interior is very nice ornated.
