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.
