Built during the 18th century this architecture masterpiece combines more architectural styles: byzantine, Brancoveanu style also known as the Wallachian Renaissance and Romanian Renaissance style and also Italian Renaissance elements. After the 1838 earthquake the building was renovated by the architect Faiser and the entrepreneur C. Schwink. In 1871 the famous Romanian artist Gheorghe Tattarescu painted the interior. Closed by the regime until 1989 the church of Coltea remains one of the most attractive  monuments of Bucharest.
