Incredibly beautiful Cathedral, every inch of wall & ceiling painted with exquisite religious imagery. We were lucky enough to catch an evening service which was truly magical

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!

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.
