This eastern orthodox church was built in central Bucharest in the Brancovenesc style. Completed in September 1722, the church has needed repairing multiple times. The 1838 earthquake destroyed the church tower, which was rebuilt in the 1850s in neo-classical style. The interior frescoes date from 1860, while the exterior ones are from the original construction of the church. In 1935, the church was given a brick facade. Check out the bust of Corneliu Coposu next to the church. Architecturally, the cross-shaped church is irreplaceable as one of the few surviving buildings in the city that are authentically Romanian.
