Bucharest’s Churches (36) » Biserica Oborul Vechi (1760-1780) Bucharest

November 18, 2018

Remarkable for the old beautiful cross the church preserves in the altar. The cross, 5 meters tall, was raised in 1719 by Serdarul Mogoș (nobleman with the rank of a cavalry commander). The church was built around this cross. The other treasure of the church is the icon of Saints Joachim and Anne brought from Constantinople and donated in 1781 by Prince Alexandru Ipsilante of Wallachia.
