Photographer's Note

Kretzulescu Church dates from the early 1720's, with the interior frescoes & religious icons added later in the mid 19th century.

The street address is Calea Victoriei 45, București 010062, Romania.

The bust in front depicts Corneliu Coposu.

The early Communists wanted to demolish this church but architects convinced them otherwise. Copusu was fiercely anti Communist and pro Nationalist. He was arrested and persecuted by the Communists, as was his wife, who died from a disease contracted in prison.
