One of the main building in Chisinau by historical and cultural importance situated downtown. Main church for Orthodox Christians to pray and admire the old style icons and architecture.
During daytime you can feed the pigeons in front of the Cathedral.
Main liturgy during the year is Easter and Christmas. Easter one is the most crowded and popular between the Christians visiting the church.

Worth to visit even if not religious.

The cathedral is really a beautiful one! Chisinau and Moldova is a beautiful city and country overall. My mother is from Moldova so I've travelled a lot around the country. We usually live with her friends but I can truly say that there are many different beautiful places to visit in Moldova.

It is in the central square. It’s the main cathedral Orthodox Church in Chișinău. Beautiful appearance and close to the main highlight of the city.

Well, I may have been influenced by the previous reviews and have had expected something it is not.
When you've seen Notre Dame de Paris or the Duomo of Milano, or the other great cathedrals of the main cities of Europe you have the right to be disappointed.
On the other hand it is one of the best attractions in Chisinau.
So go there and decide by yourself.
But don't expect anything grandiose, and you might be satisfied.

The cathedral was built in a Neoclassical design in the 1830s. The adjacent bell tower which was destroyed by the Communists after WW2 and rebuilt in 1997.The simple design with pleasing doric columns and a pretty dome are complemented by the very pretty mosaics inside.

Take your time to stay and enjoy an ice cream from the local seller during the spring,summer or autumn. Calming atmosphere with beautiful people relaxing or passing by which means it’s a great people watching place.

This place is a bit special. I kept returning during my stay. It is really peaceful. Some of the icons are stunning. People of all ages were coming it to pray. It is not a place where you will see tourists.

Some incredible orthodox interior wall paintings and mosaics can be found in this Cathedral. It’s a very holy place with people paying this respects. No photographs allowed inside, so tourists must be respectful. There is a grand chandelier-cum-candelabra and iconostasis to be seen. A hidden gem in Chisinau’s centre.

Yes, it's a beautiful cathedral but it is not welcoming! I came here, made the sign of the cross, as I entered, lit candles and began to pray. A monk saw me make the sign of the cross (Orthodox make the sign differently) and saw I was Catholic, gave me a mouthful of abuse and got another man to throw me out. The monk kept pointing to the ground and motionning that Catholics go to hell. In the end I decided to be the better person and I wished him pax vobiscum and I left. What a shame as the people of Moldova are lovely but the prejudice I experienced there was shocking.

Don't dismiss the idea of entering this church by the simple exterior. The interior is rich with iconography. A must see.
