The location on which this monastery has been built was significant even in prehistoric times. Excavations have revealed some of the oldest settlements in this region, dating back to the Paleolithic. The first church on this location was built in the 1500s. The establishment of the monastery here in the 16th century made it a place of renowned culture and science. Damaged by the earthquakes of the 19th century, the monastery was thoroughly repainted and rebuilt. Today, it houses the relics of Saint Nectarius the Thaumaturge. The bell tower is the highest in Romania at 25 metres. The decoration is sombre and majestic. Check out the Baroque iconostasis and the tombstones in the narthex.

Radu Voda Monastery Reviews & Ratings
This sacred place is an oasis of tranquility when it is not populated by the envoys coming to pray. My work place was nearby and the bells beat my memories.
Very beautiful place where you can pray and connect with God.
A wonderful old building with his history
More than 400 years of history, the big church surrounded by the park worth a short visit. It is a very nice and quiet orthodox oasis in the middle of Bucharest.
A silent oasis in the center of Bucharest! Unbelievable! It's a must see, no doubt! Later edit, September 1, 2018: The monastery is very famous, no doubt and the priests and the monks are very loved by their congregation (I don't know if this is the right word, the believers?). The iconography is also very famous, the paintings are amazing, the colors are in a very good harmony, the proportion of the architecture of the church is awesome, indeed! Here you may pray at the relics of Saint Nectarie and here you may see (and pray) at the grave of the Justinian (1901-1977), one of the patriarchs of the Romanian Orthodox Church, the initiator and the mastermind of the rehabilitation of this monastery...
