One of the historic Greek Orthodox churches that have survived into the 21st century, the exterior looks relatively new and that is because it was restored to its 16th century appearance in the 20th century. There is a beautiful 18th century portal above the doorway...More

In the old town close to what will be the Old Court Museum. Sometimes referred to as the Old Court Church. Might be the oldest church in Bucharest. Pre-Orthodox Easter celebrations were beginning so we celebrated part of a mass when we looked at this...More

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
