One of the most amazing Orthodox Church. Great romanian Landmark. Recovery and reflection. Amazing wall paintings and architecture.

This is a relatively recent Cathedral (1926?) and the outside is nothing special but the inside is a delight. Visit to see lots of gold!

A beautiful Cathedral, definitely a must see if you are in Timisoara! It could do with a bit more historical information leaflets but if you are more organised than me I am sure you can find all this online.

It is spectacular day or night for visiting. It is beautiful inside and outside. You need to keep the silence inside. The pictures are amazing, next to the river. After enjoying the Victoria square, don't miss the Cathedral.

Definitely swing by to check out the architecture and the design and paintings that cover the entire inside of the Cathedral. Especially if you're already in Piața Victoriei... It's right across the street. One of the prettiest churches I've seen.

Visited after almost 10 years, this is a beautiful place of worship and very dear to the local people of any faith, one of the 'centerpieces' of the town. Many don't know that 25 years ago many people were shot on the steps in front of the cathedral, shot by their own army and militia during the Romanian People's revolution... More

This was my first visit to a "working" orthodox cathedral (apart from Hagia Sophia in Istanbul) and was very interesting from that point of view alone. The gilding of the icons was most eye catching, as were the actions of the supplicants. Outside I noted a plaque that stated that it was completed in 1936, which greatly surprised me, as... More
