The Palace of the Patriarchate was founded by Prince Constantine and his wife between 1654-1658. Since then it has been reconstructed quite a few times and therefore the building has not preserved its original shape, mainly due to the additions added to it and the various adjustments made over the years.
This church is the heart of the Romanian Orthodox Church. Notice the beautiful frescoes in the front of the building. Enter through the arches of the entrance and observe the decorated altar.
Inside the church, you will find beautiful Byzantine icons and altars. If you visit around Easter, you should come to hear the midnight mass sung by the famous choir of the church.
To this day, the church is included in the list of historical monuments in Romania.
