The Patriarchal Cathedral, Bucharest (1655)

The 17th century Cathedral stands on a small hill, in the heart of Bucharest, in the vicinity of the historic district of the city. The Cathedral has been for centuries the center of the Romanian Orthodox Church and a national symbol.
Several remarkable buildings, all historic and art monuments, are clustered around the majestic Cathedral: the former Palace of the Chamber of Deputies (1904), a monumental portico building with a characteristic dome, the Patriarchal Palace (1935), residence of the Patriarch, the head of the Romanian Church, and the Chapel (1723) with the Brancovan style porch. The Bell Tower (1698) is the only remaining vestige of the original walled precinct.
