The soviets converted this cathedral in a museum during the Soviet regime and only after Moldova became independent again it recovered its spiritual purpose including the reprinting of the frescos. Overall I think it is more beautiful inside than inside and the bell tower and the arc du triumph combines to define a very pleasant part of the city

Located within Cathedral Park , which is behind The Arch of Triumph and next to Cathedral Tower. You wont miss it if you are close to the Government Hose and the National palace.

It is a nice Orthodox cathedral. The interior of the cathedral is pretty but no photos are allowed inside. You can also take a stroll outside the cathedral which is quite nice. The location is near another tourist attractions of Chisinau, so it is also a good convenient place to have a visit.

Interesting Orthodox church and quite busy with worshipers when we visited. The grounds and park surrounding the church are very well maintained. The interior is quite small but extremely lavish, with lots of gold, frescoes and icons. Our visit lasted about 10 minutes. Tip: No photography inside the church.

One of the main monument in Chisinau. Nothing fancy, a typical orthodoxe church. No pictures allowed inside. One of the nicest building to see in Chisinau though.

This cathedral in the middle of one of the two main parks in central Chisinau is a good photo op from the outside, but even more treats wait for those that venture into the doors (though you can't take photos inside). Vivid murals adorn all the walls in that famous Russian Orthodox style - brilliant colours and quite a different... More
