My tour group was lucky to come to this church on a quiet Sunday morning shortly before service. The site has been incredibly preserved with archeological pieces was various sites from around Romania. A pristine example of Christian Orthodox architecture.

A must in bucharest. Little but beautiful. Full of fresco and decoration. Like a lot of others churches in Romania is little so that the people could be near to God. Visit it in the morning there are fewer people

The church was build in 1724 and is build in a specific style of construction in the southern part of Romania. The style is called Brancoven style. It is a pleasure to visit this church.

The Old Town area of Bucharest is filled with a number of small churches. Everyone has some charm and is worth a visit. This particular church was packed with parishioners when I visited. It was fascinating to watch the service for a short while.

Beautiful, inside and out. We visited with the Walkabout free walking tour. Church was moved to its current position on rollers!

Fascinating icons and a very good written history which give an interesting insight into the survival of this beautiful church in the communist era.

Being irreligious, I dont typically dig churches and other religious places, but this was very quaint, cute and almost spiritual

Beautiful and preserved orthodox church. One of the few not torn down by the communists. Many large stone placks line the protected courtyard in Latin, Greek, Cyrillic and perhaps more I did not recognize. Saved from various holy structures that were razed, its a must...More
