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.

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.
