OLD COURT CHURCH IN BUCHAREST HISTORY

The original church had a great tower struck by lightning in 1691. Like the OLD COURT nearby, THE OLD COURT CHURCH OF BUCHAREST was destroyed by fires in time or by the Turks invasions. Many other worship places had to face hard times in the period, like the ARMENIAN CHURCH too. At the end of the 18th century, a lord called Constantin Hagerli will sell all the lands near the building. Thus, all around the church merchants will build stores. The area will fall until 1847 when a great fire will destroy part of the worship place and all the buildings nearby. The church will be rebuilt in 1852 by the Austrian architect I. Schlatter in new gothic style. The Old Court Church in Bucharest is 25 m high.

VISIT THE OLD CITY FROM OLD COURT CHURCH

Very interesting is that the new-gothic walls were demolished and thus the original walls, from the 16th century, of the church have been kept. Only the windows are from the 19th century. Inside the church, you can see the original stone floor and the grave of the founder of this worship place, all marked and tourist attractions. The Old Court Church in Bucharest is near the ruins of the Old Court where from Vlad the Impaler, or Dracula, ruled the Romanian Country in the 15th century and close to a historical monument STAVROPOLEOS CHURCH. If you want a wish to come true, this is the church you should pray in, under the protection of St. Anton or go to ZLATARI CHURCH, near Victory Avenue. There are also bars and restaurants nearby, including the famous Manuc’s Inn.
