Stavropoleos Monastery downtown Bucharest

We stumbled upon this beautiful monastery from the early 18th century while having lunch at Caru' cu Bere restaurant in downtown Bucharest. It's on a small street, with nuns attending the candles and shrine. It was one of those finds that can't be anticipated or overestimated. 
A splendid afternoon.

The tower is from modern times, but it fits its setting and is a beautiful addition to the site.

Rose of Sharon hedge, Louie's favorite flower.
