  1. Raymund Netzhammer , Bishop in Romania , Südostdeutsches Kulturwerk München 1995, pp. 272f .: “Of these, I was particularly interested in the Biserica Albǎ, the white church, located outside the village. It was almost completely disintegrated and has recently been restored as a historical monument under the direction of the architect Ghica-Budeşti. This real Romanian building inspired Mr. Ghica for the architecture of our United St. Basil's Church in an extremely fortunate way, without copying it. "
