it is always a strange feeling to see temples in the middle if buildings and apartments towers; this is the case of the little monastery ...you can find some of those in the city; worth to check them in and out

Short visit in the old town. Worth’s pairing a short while of your visit. Very quiet and reflective courtyard.

Set right in the old town, there’s no reason not to go to this church. It’s wonderfully ornate, and historically very interesting. There isn’t a great deal more to say about it, but I don’t think that much more needs to be said.

This relatively tiny Church has been very well maintained and is a work of art unto itself. Beautiful artwork inside and out, it is inspirational and shouldn't be missed.

This church is in the middle of a pedestrian area in Bucharest. It's centuries of use and it's iconography make it worth the visit, It is still an active monastary (nuns) with regular church services.
