A very large Cathedral, very imposing, inside and out. There are no seats, people stand but every piece of the inside is decorated.

First off, its free, they do not charge to enter and all they require is that you be respectful of the premises. Next, its beautiful, the dome and pillars all let in the natural sunlight which highlights the artwork and stain glass.

Holy Trinity Cathedral, Sibiu, dedicated to the Holy Trinity is an Orthodox church built between 1902-1906 in the city of Sibiu, on the site of a Greek church that served 1797-1799 as cathedral until then. It was founded by Bishop John Meţianu architects and engineers built after plans Virgil Nagy and Joseph Kammer in Budapest.
