It's gorgeous, from the marvellous external brickwork facade to the tranquil interior. Placed on likely the busiest Boulevard with six lanes in Bucharest, it provides a tranquil space from the thunderous traffic. Unveiled in 1916 it has what's known as Neo-Lombard Romanesque styling.

Pretty, small church which is Catholic but looks more Orthodox in some ways. Tucked into a very busy street and easily missed. There are only three or four Catholic Churches in the Orthodox city so definitely one to to consider for mass.

One of the few Catholic Church in Bucharest. Nothing special, between two buildings worth the time only if you came randomly for the street. Inside, you can see a copy of the Holy Shroud and nothing more. Cool the little internal garden.

Full of history, it is worth a visit! It is one of the few religious buildings that are still standing in the heart of the city. Catholic hurch, by the way.

One of the few Catholic churches in Bucharest. Very impressive interior decoration. Unfortunately the church has not been under repairs for a long time.
