  • On Fleet Street not far from the Royal Courts of Justice, rises this church that goes almost unnoticed being "stuck" between buildings at the sides and only a very small area enclosed by a railing can make people understand that this is a church. As usual, this church stands on the ruins of a previous medieval and was restored in 1800, but is "escaped" to the Blitz, although the interiors have been restored anyway. The Church is in Gothic style, with the octagonal nave, the Interior is very dark, I like them; the Church is used by the Christian Orthodox community, in fact inside is a valuable iconostasis typical of Orthodox worship. The special feature of this church is however outside on the façade above the clock there is a niche with the statues of two giants Gog and Magog, legendary founders of London, that at the stroke of the hours and the quarters, beating him with sticks the two bells put in half and turning his head. Instead above the entry door is a statue of Queen Elizabeth I, who is said to be the oldest outdoor statue in London. Passing on Fleet Street is worth a visit.

  • An interesting church. Originally a guild church and is Church of England but they also share it with the Romanian Orthodox church. So you've many icons depicting Mary which isn't quite the usual .
  • Lovely church
  • St. Dustan-in-the-West is a Anglican church which is kindly shared to the Romanian Orthodox Church for their regular services and liturgies. The overall atmosphere is excellent and their services brings tranquility and purification to the human soul as well as negative discharge in times of chaos and stress.
