The church only dates from the beginning of the 20th century but is worth a visit, especially after the Catholic and Evangelical churches, because it is so different inside!

Such a beautiful church. Loved it. Went there to look at the beautiful decorations. Was a little stunned.

As Orthodox churches go this is one of the better examples in Rumania, which may be a reason to visit, but if you do not insist on Orthodox churches almost any Catholic or protestant church will match it for historical or artistic value. Note the special "3D" paintings that are uncommon in Orthodox churches.

This cathedral has a gorgeous exterior that is hard to get a good photo of because of the neighbouring buildings. Well worth the trip to have a look at it. Also check out the archways across the street for their wall and ceiling paintings.

Not being religious and having seen tons of Catholic churches all over the world, I was reluctant to visit yet another church. Wow. I was impressed. The paintings and stained windows were breath taking. I am glad I went.

Not being religious at all cathedrals and the like don't really do it for me, however as we were walking by we thought we'd pop our heads in. Wow, rarely can a building take my breath away but something about this place did.

This may seem like a typical orthodox cathedral from the outiside but from the inside, it's just fabolous. The paintings were also amazing. Apart from that it's just a sight worth seeing.
