This church is so overrated, that we literally couldn't be bothered to even stop next to it during this visit in Bucharest. It was supposed to be open, according to the time table, but it wasn't, and nobody had any idea why. While the inner...More

I really enjoyed going to this unique monastery and church. We were allowed to take photos. Lovely exterior and inside courtyard. It was built in 1724 and is now an Eastern Orthodox monastery for nuns.

Beautiful church/monestary saved from destruction when Nicolae Ceausescu was building his boulevards and palace. People figured out how to move churches and apartment buildings out of the demolition path and relocated them many blocks away.

Beautiful small monastery and church. It is located in the heart of old town near Caro cu Bere and is a quiet haven as such. The paintinga inside are very nice and so is the intetnal courtyard. Definitely a go.

Taking under consideration how centrally it is located, it's a good place to stop for anyone interested in an insight to orthodox Christianity. Currently under maintenance, but accessible nonetheless.

One of the most interesting churches in the city, allows you to take a short rest inside from the noises of the city.

The small, ancient church and monastery still today houses about 7 nuns. Not only it has witness many happenings of Romanian history but also displays a unique arquitectural style combining Greek, Roman and Turkish styles

A little gem in the centre of the old town. The garden is just lovely, definitely go inside while touring the old city!

Hi, no there is not an entry fee. It is a monastery still functioning as a pilgrimage site, not a monument. No waiting time to enter. I don't know the time scedule, we 've been there around noon and it was open. I hope... More
