The location of this church/ monastery in the heart of the old town is very interesting. It's very close to buzzing streets full of bars and restaurants.

It's a must see when in the center of Bucharest. I am not a religious person but I liked the buildings and the little garden around it. It's very peaceful in contrary to the rest of Bucharest/

Nice little church and surrounding area in Bucharest old town. Worth a look if in the area. Would go out of the way to see it but be prepared it's not huge. 15-20 mins is ample.

On the same street as "Caru' cu Bere" (the famous restaurant and beer hall), in the old town. Very pretty little church worth a look.

This is one of the most beautiful church in Bucharest, modest in size , but nicely crafted . It is a masterpiece of arhitecture, the garden space is divine. I walk often in here for the mere purpose of relaxing.

This church is a spectacular and very beautiful building adorned with lovely wooden and stone carvings and religious paintings on the outside. Inside fresco-covered walls and dome plus an icon-filled gold iconostasis. Built in 1724-30 it is a little gem

Lovely church that is still active. Small group of nuns and a priest live and work there. Courtyard is an oasis of peace in the city. Stop and sit for a bit. Our guide told us it is respectful for men to uncover their heads...More

Another beautiful Orthodox church in Bucharest, built in 1724. Annex to the church there is a monastery. A walk through the courtyard (filled with gravestones) is an excellent program to relax and take lots of amazing photos. It's is located in the Lipscani Old Town...More

We visited with our tour guide Alina. She shared the importance of religion to the Romanian people. Beautiful cloister and worth a stop while visiting old Bucharest.
