“Beautiful but under renovation”

Biserica Sf. Nicolae
Ranked #51 of 349 things to do in Bucharest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 5, 2018

The domes of this building are beautiful and I am sure that when the scaffolding has been removed it will be a truly amazing structure. Could not go inside as a service was underway

Of all the churches we visited we thought this one was beautiful. As the outside was covered in scaffolding we thought it was closed - but glad we tried the door as were were able to enter and view the beautiful interior.

This St. Nicholas Russian Church was built by Russian Ambassador in 1905-1909. Today it's stil under reconstruction (as of June 2017) and unfortunately we weren't able to see its beauty.

This church has been under renovations for a long time.
Unfortunately, that did very little to its look and it's still rather dull and totally underwhelming.

Russian Orthodox Church after renovation. It's beautiful. Near where the revolution happened, it had some damage from rounds fired from both sides.

The inside is especially gorgeous which says a lot as Orthodox churches normally are beautiful. A must see as it's also historic.
