This is a must see in Sibiu it's unique style and surroundings are something to behold. It is basically massive, huge though delicate and detailed. I think it is emblematic for the city itself.

The Gothic church, a Lutheran Cathedral, is one of the most impressive sights in Sibiu. The old Romanesque church of St. Mary was extended by the Saxon population from 1325. Its 73 metres high tower, the highest in Sibiu, was finished in 1494. The tower has 4 turrets, indicating that the town had “ius gladiator:” i.e., it could execute criminals.... More

The building of this church started in the 14th century and the parish has certainly seen changes with the congregation falling from 14,000 at the beginning of the 20th century to only about 1400 now. Typically, for a protestant church, you have to pay (all of 5 lei) to visit, but it is worth it with some extraordinary wall decorations... More

I have tried to visit this church several times, but it is always closed for renovations. Since it is a protestant church do not expect extensive decorations inside, but the sheer volume of the church is impressive, its proportions are fine, its simplicity is touching.

Although this cathedral was under restoration during my visit, it was worth the visit. Due to the height of the tower, it can be seen all over town!

Unfortunately when I was there with my family, the cathedral couldn't be visited because it was under some major renovation work. The exterior though it takes your breath away. It is absolutely majestic and you can imagine how it was in its glory days. The only reason I marked it as being very good instead of excellent is that we... More

The Lutheran Evangelical Cathedral and Tower is an impressive structure in downtown Sibiu. It provides a stark contrast to the Eastern Orthodox bisercas that dominate Romania. It is reflective of the diverse ethnic groups that occupied Romania over the centuries. We were unable enter the church because of renovations.
