It is look like a castle if look at it from far. Next to Old Romanian School. Very good architecture in gothic style, built in 16th century. No photography allowed inside the church,.

You could be forgiven for thinking that this early 16th century orthodox church is a fairytale castle .The pictures a fabulous addition to your portfolio.Step inside and you will find a rich visual treat that should not be missed. No photography allowed. Within ten minute walk of the main square

In 1512 began to build this church, but it took some centuries to finish it. The outside of the church is very interesting, it is not comparable with other similar churches. Inside it is very nice also.

As the reviewers have noted before, it has rather unusual exterior for an orthodox church. Inside, however, it is typically orthodox, old and impressive. Also walk around the church and look for old murals on its walls and glimpse into the cemetery– it is serene, with some very beautiful views. If you have reached this church, take your time and...

A fusion of Romanesque Orthodox style, this ancient church dated back around the fifteenth century is one of the most beautiful in the city, the peculiarity is its spiers. It may be a short visit here being located a short distance from the historic center.

Built in a rather glaring Byzantine style,this church stands out from the subdued merchants houses of the surrounding square.Inside there are some rather impressive frescoes of Romanias last king and queen,covered by plaster to protect them from communist leaders and uncovered in 2004.
