This ranks above the Parliament building on Tripadvisor - seriously ? It's nice. Worth a wee visit if you are going by but are people that give this 5 stars must give 5 to everything they see. A friend had visited the previous day and...More

Would have loved to have gone inside but as we were part of a Viking Danube cruise group we did not have time. The architecture was stunning.

This Monastery was built back in 1724 and it is one of the few historic churches still standing today since most were destroyed during the communist area. From the time it was built, people would go to church and stand for the religious service sometimes...More

Entering the small church was a step back into an age before all the finery of the Church was displayed lavishly on later in newer buildings. It is an oasis in the concrete buildings of Bucharest.

This tiny church is exquisite and harbours many fascinating murals, which could take hours to explore. Well worth a visit.

The place is gorgeous, especially during summer, when red geraniums are everywhere in the garden. It's absolutely quiet, even though outside the courtyard, there is vibrant music and loudness. The church is also extremely beautiful, a small piece of architectural history, totally worth visiting.

I love this quirky little church in the middle of the Old Town of Bucharest. It is small, but it makes you feel at peace when you set your eyes on it from the first time.

My wife and I found this church to be beyond words. We felt such a powerful feeling being in there. You can 'feel' the history of 500 years. Great place and a must see on your old town tour of Bucharest!

This church is a hidden gem in Old Town. We were able to go inside one day on a walking tour and also day in the garden for an explanation. The church is also a monestary and we were told that it was actually moved...More

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
