The Hill of the Patriarchate is an important historical, cultural and architectural center in the capital.


For several centuries, between 1650 and 1997 it was the seat of Legislative Power (Chamber of Deputies since 19th century).


Since 17th century was seat of the Bucharest Metropolitanate and since 1866 the seat of autonomous Romanian Orthodox church which in 1925 will be granted the rank of Patriarchate.

The Patriarchal Cathedral was built in 1658 as church of a large fortified monastery and shortly afterward here will be installed the Bucharest Metropolitanate. The bell tower was built in 1698. Notice the crescent on the sky, which is present in the same position under the crosses on top of many Orthodox churches in Romania (see second picture), including this one. One theory is that it was a sign of the vasality of Wallachia to the Ottoman empire. Other theory is that is an ancient pagan symbol.

Bucur Church was long time believed to be built by the legendary founder of the city, sometime in 14th or 15th century. Its architecture nevertheless is specific to 18th century.

Radu Vodă (former) Monastery built in 1577. The paintings in the bell tower's gate are not historical but contemporary
