“MIHAI VODA MONASTERY” BUCHAREST IN MODERN TIMES

The Mihai Voda Monastery had large cellars and the walls were built to resist sieges, just like fortresses had. At about 1755 a new entrance will be available, a tower that connected the Old Court with the building. In the beginning of the 19th century a great fire and an earthquake will damage the church and the monks’ cells but the whole complex will be repaired. Thus, in 1920, it will become the church of the knights. It was all about the Mihai the Brave Knights order, founded by the King Ferdinand I. Here, inside the monastery, all the officers and the commanders in the army would swear to serve the country in the presence of the king himself.
