Gallery of Romanian Medieval Art

Highly recommended
Under communism, numerous church buildings were destroyed. The treasures they once housed are now displayed in this museum. Unique and superb items from the 14C to the 19C; note the wooden door from Sganov church (16C), the wall paintings from Curtea de Arges, Moldavian carved wood icons and thrones (16C-17C), iconostases (17C) from the monasteries of Cotroceni and Arnota, and icons from the church of Prince Serban in Bucharest.
