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.

There is a legend connected to this monastery, according to which Viteazu Michael made a promise before God that he will build a monastery if He at His turn will get the death penalty by beheading that was to take place soon.
