Bucharest, travel notes by Yiorgos Kostopoulos©

We publish here seven photographs with annotations from the travel notes kept by Yiorgos Kostopoulos on the Panorama trip to Romania (15-26 April 2011). The photographs were taken during our visit to the historic Stavropoleos Monastery at the center of the Romanian capital on Lazarus Saturday, 16/4, just after the celebration of the Divine Liturgy.
The annotations and photographs presented here give a foretaste of the sort of documentation and commentary linked with visual material that will be available in Panorama’s digitalized archive, once the on-going APAN website construction is complete.
For abundant information about the history and current activities of the monastery, as well as a rich photographic gallery and audio files, see the monastery’s own, extraordinary, website www.stavropoleos.ro.
