Creţulescu Church stands just south of Piaţa Revoluţiei; the 1722 red-brick structure was damaged in the 1989 Revolution. To the side stands a memorial bust of Corneliu Coposu, who spent 17 years in prison for his anticommunist activities and, prior to his death in 1995, was awarded the Légion d'Honneur by the French government. Behind the church is a statue of a headless torso, a memorial to fallen revolutionaires.
