Evaluation Report of the Church of Sf. Arhangeli, Bistreţ commune, Dolj

Church of Sf. Arhangeli
This is a historic church, built in the 19th century. It is of the paleo-Christian Basilica type, with no steeple but with a porch, narthex (the entrance or lobby area, located at the end of the nave, at the far end from the church's main altar) and nave.

It is made of simple brick, plastered, without foundation stones or concrete.

Church of Sf. Arhangeli
The monument is not marked properly, has no electricity, and is protected by bars on the windows and a simple lock on the door. The outside and inside shows no rising damp or rainwater damage.

There are minor cracks in the external walls, and the base of the building is surrounded with a degraded ring of concrete. The roof is in poor repair.

The walls have the original paintings, some of which are multi-layered, but are badly degraded, although they preserve the original colour.

Church of Sf. Arhangeli
The wooden door is secured with a simple padlock. The floor is degraded. There are signs of the rough repair of the plastered walls. There is no internal heating system.

The furniture is old and degraded. There is only natural lighting, which is unsatisfactory, and there is soot on the walls.

The frescoes are painted in vivid colours, but are deeply degraded, most have been damaged by cleaning. There is no trace of any current renovation of the building. There are heritage books inside the church. Services no longer take place inside the church.
