Entering the small church was a step back into an age before all the finery of the Church was displayed lavishly on later in newer buildings. It is an oasis in the concrete buildings of Bucharest.

This tiny church is exquisite and harbours many fascinating murals, which could take hours to explore. Well worth a visit.

While walking around Old Town it is worth stopping in to look. It's very small but has beautiful wall paintings, typical of Orthodox churches but very old/historic. It used to be a monastery but now houses nuns. We went by on Sunday during mass and...More

The place is gorgeous, especially during summer, when red geraniums are everywhere in the garden. It's absolutely quiet, even though outside the courtyard, there is vibrant music and loudness. The church is also extremely beautiful, a small piece of architectural history, totally worth visiting.

I love this quirky little church in the middle of the Old Town of Bucharest. It is small, but it makes you feel at peace when you set your eyes on it from the first time.

Easy place to find near the old town. Peaceful, serene, just what a fine old church should be! Inside very ornate.

Definitely see this. It's very tiny, so it won't take long, but it's very beautiful and lovingly cared for.

Hi, no there is not an entry fee. It is a monastery still functioning as a pilgrimage site, not a monument. No waiting time to enter. I don't know the time scedule, we 've been there around noon and it was open. I hope... More
