Stavropoulos Church - Bucharest, Romania

Reflecting on Bucharest, Romania -2015
Mănăstirea Stavropoleos - also known as Stavropoulos Church. During the last century it was an Eastern Orthodox monastery for nuns in central Bucharest, Romania. The church is built in Brâncovenesc style. The patrons of the church are St. Archangels, Michael and Gabriel.

All that remains from the original monastery is the church, alongside a building from the beginning of the 20th century, which shelters a library, a conference room and a collection of old 18th century icons and ecclesiastical objects, and parts of wall paintings recovered from churches demolished during the communist regime. read more about our visit to Romania
