This is the oldest church in Bucharest, completed in 1558 by Prince Mircea Shepherd, who was eventually entombed over here. For the next two centuries this was where Romanian Royals were coronated. The church's Mystique was especially enhanced when in 1848, when the massive fire of the city burned the church but left the icon of St. Anthony entirely untouched. Architecturally, the church has some Romanesque influences. Check out the neo-Renaissance frescoes. You will usually find it crowded with devotees of St. Anthony. Don't visit on Tuesday, unless you really want to feel the crowd.

  • Beautiful little church with amazing architectural detailing - you. An go in and enjoy the serenity but try and not be that tourist who has no respect for local culture and other people - enjoy the space don't disturb it!!!
