Biserica Stavropoleos, Bucharest
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Churches, Tourist Spots
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.

I passed by this church while walking on the Stavropoleos Street. Its harmonious design and beautiful ornamentations are actually eye-catching 🏛.
u can come and have an alfresco lunch here , no one will bother you , it's pretty chill and the church is nice as well
One of the most interesting monuments of Bucharest. It has a very beautiful architecture, and it is a bit of a "hidden gem" inside the city center
Interesting old church. It's worth stopping by if you are in the area.

One of my favorite churches in Bucharest (I'm not a big fan of churches). Try to peek in, but remember it's a church, not a tourist attraction. You might be lucky and catch the choir singing.
