Here you can find useful information about some of the most interesting churches in Bucharest.

Kretzulescu Church (Biserica Cretulescu)

Nestled amid the other historical buildings in Piata Revolutiei, this small red-brick Orthodox church was built in 1722 by the great chancellor Iordache Kretzulescu and his wife, Safta (a daughter of Constantin Brancoveanu) in the Brancovenesti architectural style.

The interior frescoes were executed around 1860 by the famous Romanian painter Gheorghe Tattarescu.

Stavropoleos Church (Biserica Stavropoleos)

The Stavropoleos Church was built in 1724 by the Greek monk Ioanikie Stratonikeas. Featuring a combination of Romanian and Byzantine architecture, it has a beautiful facade and a delicately carved columned entrance.

Surrounded by a peaceful garden, it is an architectural jewel, with beautiful frescoes and wood-painted icons. The mass (in Romanian) is worth viewing if you can find room in this small and cozy church.
