Originally built in 1860, this church was several times reconstructed. It has central tower and two towers in front, also many art works inside such as icons and mosaics. Today it's the biggest Roman Orthodox church in Bucharest.

I have been to this church several times. It is very well taking care of both outside and inside. The paintings inside the church are really pretty and the the entire church is fairly bright. Ideal if you want to take pictures.
