The first church we visited in Bucharest and it remains my favourite. To see the beautiful iconostasis and icons around the walls as we entered was breath-taking, especially as an hour or so earlier in the Art Museum we had seen iconostases saved from monasteries...More

Although it is a beautiful church that is well maintained, there is nothing really special about it. If you like this sorts of things, you should go and check it out. Otherwise, there is nothing especially distinguishing about it.

Lovely little church in the Old Town of Bucharest. Very beautiful interior. It seems to be popular with the local who regularly worship here.

This is a beautiful church and a must-see on your trip to Bucharest. The interior is spectacular. A stop here is well worth it.

The church is the oldest religious building in Bucharest, having been built in 1559, still in original condition and I have to say the condition is good!

Very pretty church to visit, especially from the outside. The inside is quite small but has some interesting paintings. Located within the old town, its worth a short visit.

Inside is what you would expect to see in an Orthodox Church with its icons and dome above. Pleasant chirchbfor a wander.

Beautifully restored and in apparent perfect condition, this basilica shows the intersection of Byzantine and European religion.

Very imposing church in Curtea Veche. Beautifully painted and well-maintained. I did not have the chance to see mass here, it would have been a nice experience. There is an underground bookstore too, but not as good as you'd expect.

Beautiful both inside and outside. Worth a visit when walking around the old town of Bucharest. It is peaceful, respected and stunning.

it's a 20 min walk, the easiest way would be to follow Calea Victoriei (the main street of your hotel) to the South, and right to the end of it you have to take left on French Street
