Mihai Voda Monastery is part of the oldest buildings in Bucharest, preserved until today. It was built on the ruins of an old church, in 1594, founded by Michael the Brave. Originally it was surrounded by a high wall, with a fortress, but with the passing of the years the building had several functions: residence, military hospital, school of medicine, State Archives.
