A small monastery built in 1724 in the very center of Bucharest. The cloister is heavily renovated, but the church is very interesting and looks original

A 300 years old church, in very good shape. But the courtyard is super cute, serendipity written all over it haha! Such a hidden gem in the heart of the busy old town.

Were it not for TripAdvisor i certainly would not have stumbled across this place. Although small it's significant for the art it has, the peaceful atmosphere and the distinctive feeling and aroma of history!

We stopped in here as we strolled through Old Town. It is quite old and, through the centuries and the candle smoke, many of the wall paintings were blackened. We were shown the cleaned paintings along with one spot on each painting showing what it looked like prior to the cleaning! Fascinating.

The Stavropoleos church is a beautiful oasis in Lipscani. It is a cute monastery and absolutely a good idea to visit in this sometimes hectic city. There is a very small garden next to it.

An ancient monastery in the heart of the Old Town. The paintings and architecture, as well as the cloister are definitely worth a visit.

Built by the Greek Phanariot ruler of Wallachia (appointed by the Ottoman Empire) Nicholaos Mavrokordatos in 1724 this Orthodox church is worth visiting.
