    This church is located in the center of Bucharest's old town. I was told that it was one of the focal points of the 1989 revolution. The church is very small but has exquisite Byzantine style frescoes and icons.

    Stavropoleos is probably the most beautiful of all the churches in Bucharest, it has a courtyard full of gorgeous, old tombstones and an ornate wooden interior.

    Built in 1720, an inn, which provided income for the monastery and its surrounding buildings, functioned here until the end of the 19th century, when it was demolished along with the other structures. Designed by architect Ion Mincu, the building that now stands in the church precincts was erected in the early 20th century.
    Within the monastery precincts there is a library, a refectory, where conferences are sometimes held, and also a collection of old religious objects, many of which are from churches demolished during the communist regime.
    Those who abide at Stavropoleos Monastery not only pray but also work and study. They restore old books, vestments and icons, make embroidery, translate books, edit old music on computer, computerise the library.

    Monastero Stavropoleos
    Il Monastero Stavropoleos di Bucarest è stata fondata nel 1724. Del monastero e la locanda originali edifici, solo la chiesa è stata conservata. Esso rappresenta uno degli esempi più importanti dello stile Brancovan nell'arte medievale romena.
    Visto dall'esterno, la chiesa è elegantemente e armoniosamente proporzionato, e ha una ricchezza di sculture in pietra. La facciata è decorata con medaglioni incorniciati da motivi decorativi vegetali, che si estendono in archi la cui forma ricorda di architettura orientale. I nuovi recinti, costruite dopo i piani dell'architetto Ion Mincu all'inizio del ventesimo secolo, dovevano prendere lo stesso sistema decorativo nel colonnato del portico e negli edifici lungo il lati sud e ovest, costruito in stile neo- stile rumeno del tempo.
