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.

The building is easy to find and it's on the suggested tourist walking tour route which you can find on the public map here and there on the city. If you follow the red line on the map, you eventually see the most important spots in the city center. The cathedral has a free bathroom near the right wall from... More

I really don't know why it's not rated higher. The exterior is lovely two colored brick and the interior is simply stunning! The frescos are bright and vibrant. It can be hard to capture pictures due to the windows and lighting but don't let that stop you from enjoying it. It makes me want to visit the other painted churches... More

We stumbled on the cathedral while out for a walk. Built between 1902 and 1906, this was a gorgeous example of art and architecture. It would have been great to attend a service at the church.

It took me several attempts to get in here due to the religious holidays that were on during my visit, but it was worth the effort. The frescos are breathtaking

Some of the reviews on this page might be a little confusing! The Orthodox Cathedral is on Strada Mitropoliei, a few minutes stroll from the main Square (Piata Mare). The church in the main square is the Roman Catholic Parish Church. Both are equally beautiful, but in different ways. Visit also the Franciscan Church, tucked away down a quiet cobbled... More

This biserca is located on the main square in Sibiu. It is another beautiful orthodox cathedral located in the center of large cities in Romania . The icon paintings are impressive.
