Stavropoleos Church

Stavropoleos Church is one of the most beautiful church and one of my favorite.

The church was built in 1724 by Ioanikie Stratonikeas, in Bucharest, Romania. It is characterized by Brâncoveanu style church, which also combines some Byzantine elements  its beautiful stone and wood carvings, of which the finest are on the main doors.

The courtyard outside has collection of tombstones dating from the 18th century.
