One of the most well known churches in Bucharest. It was many times renovated since 17th century when Wallachian prince Matei Basarab has built a stone wall for a wooden church. "Zlatari" means Goldsmiths. Have a look.

Zlatari Church which located along the busy Victory Street and just opposite to the famous CEC Palace should not be missed by tourists who travelled around that area. The church has been renovated and some of the paintings inside still appeared to be attractive.

Another old church,beautiful,nice rehabilitated but not very impressive,situated on Calea Victoriei,close to some other landmarks,more interesting, like CEC Palace or History Museum of Romania. The church,not very big,is surrounded from three sides by tall blocks,it has a white facade with red bricks adornments.
