"Fundenii Doamnei" Church, eastern Bucharest (1699)

On the eastern edge of the city stands one of the most interesting churches in Bucharest, remarkable through the conspicuous decoration of the façades, seeming as if it came straight out of a Persian story from A Thousand and One Nights. The founder, the Sword Bearer Mihail Cantacuzino, was also responsible for raising the wonderful Coltea Church. Fundenii Doamnei, currently undergoing restoration works, counts among the outstanding achievements of Brancovan art. See more pictures at this link:
