The Stavropoleos Orthodox Church

A historical and architectural monument, the church was build between 1724 and 1730 by the Greek archimandrite Ioanichie. The porch of the church having four stone columns is richly ornamented. Hidden between taller buildings, the Stavropoleos church is situated behind the former Post Office Palace (the current National Museum of History). This is an edifice showing the most representative and excellent influences of late Brancovenesc style. The stone columns, the pedestals, chapiters, and the railed porch attract the attention due to the skillful sculptures having vegetal and animal motifs.
