Stavropoleos monastery

The Biserica Mănăstirii Stavropoleos is a magical place in the city center of București. It is a Romanian-orthodox cloister in Brâncovenesc style standing between the more modern buildings of the old town. It was built by a Greek monk in 1724 and is beautifully decorated on the inside, but also outside around the tiny door.

Next to the church the old cloister building has been restored and the inner courtyard is now a delightful place of silence in a vivid city. It is just a small cloister but it’s worth to have a stop here. When you’re walking through the city center, you’ll probably also stumble upon it automatically.
