Panoramic view of Metropolitan Church patio. Consecrated to Saint Emperors Constantine and Helen, the church is situated on the Metropolitan Church Hill, and is a construction of impressive proportions (28 m long in the interior, with a 14.60 m wide narthex). It was raised in 1656-1658 by prince Constantin Serban Basarab. During Radu Leon's rule (1664-1669), the church became the Wallachian Metropolitan seat, as in the 16th century it had been moved from Targoviste to the Sf.Gheorghe-Vechi Monastery first, and then to Radu Voda Monastery in Bucharest.
