Amazing architecture

It has so many unique details, the atmosphere is amazing, it's architecture is different. But the staff could be friendlier

It is one of my favorites in the city. Beautiful architecture, lovely inside paintings and the small interior courtyard gives the impression of an old, mysterious castle. I highly recommend it!

I stumbled across this Church one evening and was able to enter during a service which was a wonderful experience. The Church itself is very beautiful - the frescoes are very faded but still beautiful.

Very intimate and authentic, religious highlight. Actually some of the sisters and monks still live here in the adjacent buildings. Serene and quiet. Worth to contemplate in here.

We visited the church on our walking tour which was lovely. There are lots of pieces of Romanian history displayed in the church and worth a visit if you are in this part of town

Location: old town, easy to get there Church: we just walked pass it and took some photos of it. Didn't go in because we could see it was quite busy and we didn't want to bother locals. There were lots of local people going in and out of the church. Really beautiful architecture and with all the nice buildings around.

If Romania did not have as many churches this would stand out as a masterpiece of architecture, as such it falls into the background but worth a visit!

religious or not, this place is a must, as it's a true cultural and historic landmark! once you step into the garden, you witness history in its walls and its garden. all the stones, all the paitings, inside and outside, they all represent parts of a place that, if it could speak, would tell so many stories!

We visited this church on our walking tour. Lovely outside and beautiful inside. No entrance fee, small church so you may have to wait to get inside.
