Postcards from Romania
Stavropoleos Church, St. Gheorghe Church
Stavropoleos Church was built by Greek monk Ioanichie Stratonikeas in 1724 in a typical Brancoveanu style, characterised by harmonious blend of Renaissance and baroque elements with traditional Romanian architectural forms. Inside are richly ornate wood and stone carvings, coloured with paintings and frescoes.
