Orthodox Churches Of Bucharest

This is a perfect tour for the ones curious to learn about the Orthodox Church, for the ones who love religious art or simply travelers interested to understand why there are so many churches in a former communist city.

On the tour we will visit a total of 8 churches and two monasteries. Some of these places go back more than 400 years and they are a testimony of faith and endurance.

Your guide will tell you stories on the Byzantine Empire and the Great Schism which lead to the separation of the Catholic and Orthodox Church. What are the similarities and differences between the two? How did the Orthodox Church survive the fall of Constantinople and how was life as a Christian Orthodox under the rule of the Ottoman Empire?

Fast forward to more recent times: Romania was under communism for half a century. How did the church survive in one of the most controlled societies behind the Iron Curtain. These and many other questions on the Orthodox Church will be answered on the tour.
