Photographer's Note

It was dark and gloomy inside the Monastery so some parts are underexposed and other parts are overexposed. But you still get a reasonable idea of the colourful frescoes decorating the interior walls and ceilings of this former nun's convent. 'Stavro' is Greek for 'Cross' and polis is Greek for city. So city of crosses. Bucharest had many churches and still does. Despite the Soviets demolishing some, many basilicas, churches, cathedrals & monasteries still remain.
