Im not a Philistine :-) but the church is really small so wont take you long to view the inside and the grounds. Worth the stop though!

Visited this Church on a walking tour around Old Town. Very pretty building with a lovely courtyard. Well worth a visit.

A gem among Bucharest churches, placed right in the heart of the old town. One of the finest and definitely must-go attractions.

Like all the churches in Bucharest, you will be blown away by the breathtaking beauty of the inside of this small church. The decor is quite stunning and as it's free to visit, it's a must see.

This is a must stop in the Old Town of Bucharest. Incredible architecture and beautiful interior. Make sure to explore the little garden as well, and if you get lucky you might run into a nun. Yes, they do still live here!

Nice place to visit, small but worth. Near the old town , and most important it is not very crowded, so you can admire in quiet.

A lovely church and cloisters, similar to many of the lovely churches around Bucharest. We were lucky enough to arrive when a service was on, which was great to experience and added to the atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

Great place to visit, but you have to walk up hill to reach the church. Parking is available. Nice place to visit early PM.
