Stavropoleos church was built in 1724 and is all that remains of the original monastery. It is an oasis of pure beauty in the heart of the historical center of Bucharest.
Although it is quite small, the church seems monumental with a specific Byzantine architectural space. The church's decorative sculptures and ornamental motifs simultaneously express a Baroque sensitivity and an Eastern taste. Without a doubt, it is one of the most surprising and recommended places to visit in Bucharest – I, for one, was not expecting to find anything so precious in the Romanian capital.
