summary

The Stavropoleos Monastery Church was built in 1724 by Greek monk Ioanichie Stratonikeas over a preexisting Catholic chapel. The building appearance combines both Eastern and Western architectural styles that create an enchanting visual appeal. As a demonstration of Romanian traditional wood carvings, some of the church’s details are hand-crafted from wood.

Beyond its façade, Stavropoleos church also houses remarkable interior artwork. Its marble altars are mesmerizing pieces of sculptural art and its iconostasis is a stunning work of paintings by Dimitrie Belizarie. Other notable features include:

•A Baroque style fountain is located in the courtyard

•The wooden ceiling is decorated with geometrical shapes

•Three gothic-style arches are adorned with carved figures and floral patterns

•Orientation paintings feature biblical scenes

•Votive candles or lanterns light up around the church during festive occasions

•It’s no wonder why Stavropoleos Church is widely recognized as an important cultural site in Romania.
