Patriarchal Cathedral - Review
Built on top of Dealul Patriarhiei (Patriarchate Hill), the Church has been center of the Romanian Orthodox faith since the seventeenth century. Even though it has been restored multiple times most of the church's original look has been preserved. The architectural style used is known as Brâncovenesc. Of particular interest is the outstanding bell tower close to the church's entrance. Though the original frescoes have been destroyed, the restored frescoes are quite beautiful and were painted in 1923. On the church's northern wall, look for three beautifully carved 16th and 17th century crosses. As it is an active religious center today, the best time to visit is during religious holidays. You might also want to visit during mass times for the church's acappella choir. The church is also the location of an 1862 assassination, when the Romanian prime minister was killed as his carriage was crossing nearby.
