Antim Monastery

Local nameMănăstirea Ortodoxă „Antim”
LocationBucharest, Romania

The Antim Monastery is located in Bucharest, Romania on Mitropolit Antim Ivireanu Street, no. 29. It was built between 1713 and 1715 by Saint Antim Ivireanu, at that time a Metropolitan Bishop of Wallachia. The buildings were restored by Patriarch Justinian Marina in the 1950s. As of 2005, there are 7 monks living in the Monastery. The monastery also hosts a museum with religious objects and facts about the life of Antim Ivireanu.

During the Communist rule of Nicolae Ceausescu the government threatened demolition of the church and many other historic structures in Romania. A project organized by engineer Eugeniu Iordachescu moved the church to a different nearby site and saved it in time.
