Biserica Stavropoleos, Bucharest

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Biserica Stavropoleos has been compared to a jewelry box because of its small size, rich exterior, and interior choral style decoration. Observe the ornate stone and wood carvings, particularly on the church's main doors, as well as the restored 18th-century ceiling and wall paintings. As one of the city's oldest churches, the house of worship is also known for its collection of Byzantine music books, ancient texts, and sacred objects. It's the only surviving part of the original women's monastery built in 1724. Notice the collection of tombstones scattered around the courtyard surrounded by a richly ornamented colonnade with oriental arches. Make Biserica Stavropoleos a centerpiece of your Bucharest vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bucharest vacation generator.

  • When you search from the first stage of the Church to find the navigation a lot. Very small and humble, and a courtyard with a small in-quiet a few priestly tombs in the courtyard and there history periods and tombstones, or epitaphs. Hagia Sophia, the church reminds me inside. All the walls there are and rather stylish figures. Beautiful and a place to be seen.

  • I passed by this church while walking on the Stavropoleos Street. Its harmonious design and beautiful ornamentations are actually eye-catching 🏛.
  • Beautiful small chapel in the historical centre of Bucharest. One of the buildings that "survived" the second world war. Must see! Go inside, you will feel the unique spirit of this place!
