Church
“Every time I visit the center of Bucharest I can't help myself walking into this beautiful and serene East-Orthodox nunnery. I don't exactly know its history but I can feel it. Its a tiny church with an amazing nunnery attached to it. I have been fortunate enough to pass by on Sundays and hear the nuns during their mass. I recommend this to you becase of the feeling it gives me each and every time I step insides it's gates. There is a lady preventing people from taking photos inside the church; please respect her. For the selfie-lovers out there the gardens are free for photography and yield much better shots anyways. The gates however, are closed a lot of the time too. Make sure to pass by again if you find your access denied.”
