Incredibly beautiful

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.

The Cathedral has some beautiful icons, and is definitely worth a visit. The inside is more beautiful if you catch a sunny day, because there is not much artificial light inside. It's ok to take pictures.

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.
