Stavropoleos Church (Biserica Stravrapoleos), Bucharest

4.7
Stavropoleos Church (Biserica Stravrapoleos) 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.

  • This small church, located in the Centre of Bucharest, very close the famous restaurant Caru cu bere, is a gem. Both its interior and especially its exterior paintings are worth a visit. Stop, watch and enjoy despite its central location the patio-claustro that has side aged nun is a cool, calm and extraordinary site. It is one of my favorite in Bucharest...

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
