Beatufil Catherdral in the Heart of Sibiu

A great hidden gem not to miss when you're in Sibiu. A very good example of a typical Orthodox Cathedral.

This is a truely beautiful church - very impressive from the outside, really takes your breath away on entering. No pews, so the congregation all have to stand, make this most unusual.

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

I visited over a hundred churches in Europe; the interior of this church is the most impressive one of all - I spent over an hour just to admire the architecture, the colour, and paintings that cover every inch of the interior surfaces.

Church is not old but will be the coming centuries. And it is if you go back in time. Excessive decorations. We were there during the mess. One in a lifetime experience!
