Located at one end of victory plaza the orthodox cathedral is an impressive building. Climbing the stairs to the ornately carved doors with the building towering above you you feel like you should hold your breath and tread lightly. Inside you have to remember to breathe and keep your jaw from hitting the floor. I left with quite a sore... More

It's a genuine looking cathedral and it's filled with history - especially the '89 Revolution. Must see.

Very imposing structure inside and out. A gift shop at the entrance has good selection of religious items. Having very little knowledge of the orthodox faith, of most interest to me were the individual personal rituals of the faithful as they entered to worship-many kissed one or more of the Icons-a very moving experience.

Interesting from both outside and inside... true gem in the heart of the city... one of the rare old buildings in the city center that are in good condition... city center is full of interesting old buildings but in very poor state...

It is such a beautiful building you can see far from the victory square. Hard to get a good picture from outside of the building. Should avoid moon time

When visiting Timisoara be sure not to miss this place as it it one of the biggest landmarks this city has. It's centrally located and you wouldn't be able to miss it even if you wanted to.

Although undeniably ornate, it didn't feel ostentatious (like Sevilla). I could have stood there for hours looking at the architecture and decoration. This is a must see!

The Orthodox Cathedral in Timisoara is definitely worth a visit. It is the most impressive Orthodox church in the city and probably one of the most beautiful in Romania. Different architectural styles and elements are combined in a unique way, making it a landmark of Timisoara. It also hosts an interesting museum in the basement.
