Princess Bălaşa Church information
Another impressive church that survived the 1980s demolition is the candy-striped Princess Bălaşa Church. The church, just northwest of Piaţa Unirii, is named after Wallachian Prince Constantin Brâncoveanu’s sixth daughter, who had a small wooden church built here in 1744 that was rebuilt over the years to the 19th-century structure that stands today.
