This charming little Lipscani church is just one of the many treasures to be found in the historic district. Built in 1724 by a Greek monk, the Eastern Orthodox church is distinguished by its stone and wood carvings. The inside is small and warm, despite being incredibly dark, and there is a delightful courtyard filled with arches, columns and some 18th century tombstones. Though currently receiving some much-needed restoration work, the church is still open 8:30 to 18:00. Sunday services are held (in Romanian, of course) at 9:30 and 10:30, and feature a small choir that sings Byzantine music - a rarity these days.
