  • This is an attractive and well maintained cathedral in the centre of Bucharest. There are a few other buildings in the enclave and there's a good view over to the palace of the parliament.  more »
  • Is worth a visit to this attraction, just a slight uphill walk to get there. Interior has beautiful frescoes and golden icon works. Very large compared to the many other Biserica's throughout...  more »
  • As Bucharest sights go, it is very impressive to see from the outside, on both directions (front and back). We didn't get inside, the English tour is more then an hour, and you must registet in advance (online or on the spot)
  • The Patriarch's seat. It's a historical monument. It is situated on the highest ground of Bucharest, elevated at no more than 60 m. It is on a very central area of the city. The walk to reach the seat is marvelous, no matter the direction you will choose. I recommend a walk through the close by neighborhoods.
