This Eastern Orthodox monastery for nuns, built in Brancovenesc style, was constructed in 1724 by archimandrite Ioanichie Stratonikeas. The monastery was built around the simple inn, which eventually gained great prestige as a place of prayer. Unfortunately much of the monastery was demolished first in the 19th century earthquake, and then from sheer disrepair.  All that remains of it now are the church and the library, but these are treasures enough. During your visit make sure to check out:

  • The restored painted dome
  • Religious artefacts and icons preserved from communist demolition of other churches, including the famous Tree of Life icon
  • The beautiful frescoes
  • The irreplaceable library collection of theology, byzantine music, arts and history.

Try and visit the church during times of musical service, which is conducted in neo-Byzantine tradition.

Stavropoleos Monastery, Bucharest Reviews - Write a Review

  • Good hotel, but the lights don't work sometimes and the orange juice at breakfast could be better.

  • Restaurant staff was INCREDIBLY rude, without any reason or provocation. Ive never been treated so terribly in a restaurant.

  • Nice hotel near to center (10 minutes by walk).

  • Quiet and staff were very polite and helpful

  • Very uncomfortable beds, taking a shower is really hard in the tiny bathtub, the breakfast starts very late (07:30) and the food is not really good. One night there has been an event in the hotel, so we couldn't sleep. After complaining at the Hotel we did NOT get a compensation. After all, I really can't recommend staying at this hotel.
