Stavropoleos Church (1724)

Stavropoleos is perhaps the most brilliant in the “pleiad” of churches to be found in Bucharest’s historical center.
Stavropoleos Church is a must-see landmark of the city for anyone visiting Bucharest.
The beginnings of the church go back in the early 1720s, in the time of the first Phanariot prince Nicolae Mavrocordat, when the Greek hieromonk Ioanichie settled in Bucharest, in the thriving area around the Princely Court, where he decided to set up an inn, followed shortly by a monastery.
