Beautiful building

Very unique and beautiful little chapel in the middle of the city. Too bad it is, as the rest of the city, very neglected and not cared for.

This monastery is right in the middle of the old town of Bucharest. What really impressed me was the Icon of Holy Mary and Jesus Christ. So peaceful and calm.. A must visit.

First of all the church is in the Old Town so no need to book a tour. You can't miss it, really! it is a small place, no more 20 mints and you are done. Of course it is beautiful but plan it in when you are walking around the Old Town.

located in the middle of the night life, it's a very quiet place to rest and pray. I encourage everyone to come here and see the orthodox church with all their paintings

The church is situated in the so-called “historical center” of Bucharest, in a nice and easily accessible area. It is a delicate and coquette building, representative for the “Brancovenian style” (created during the reign of Constantin Brancoveanu, about 1700). It is probably the most beautiful monument of late Byzantine art in Bucharest. The frescoes are well conserved or carefully restored.... More

If you ever go to Bucharest, you should pay a visit to this small ancient orthodox church. It is located very close to Victoriei Street, which is one of the main streets in town, just in front of one of the buildings of the minsitry of economy. As soon as you enter the church you will feel that time has... More
