Only from the outside

The truth is, we just saw it from the outside. It is a wonderful building,though I feel it could be in a better condition.

The church is small but cozy, the paintings on the walls are impressive. Outside it has an interiori yard which is also worth visiting.

This is one of the oldest churches in Bucharest. Definitely should be in top 5 destinations to see in Bucharest. The place is small but full of history.

You have to know that the current church was in the past a monk monastery. Thus it preserves the specific rituals of an orthodox monastery.

It’s an old little monastery with very special atmosphere, architecture and painted walls. It's a cultural experience rather than a spiritual one. Looks like a gem under the streetlights of the Old Town in the early evening. It’s a must see also inside-charming.

Beautiful old byzantine church in the historical center of Bucharest. A must visit for its quiet and archaic atmosphere.
