About Stavropoleos Monastery

Stavropoleos Monastery, also called as Stravropoleos Church was my most favourite landmarks during my Old Town City Walking Tour. It is an Eastern Orthodox monastery in the Old Town of Bucharest and is quite an amazing monument. Founded by a Greek monk, it is said that the church was built in 1724. It is supposedly a masterpiece of Brancovan architectural style.
