Located in the heart of Chisinau in a nice park. The looks of the cathedral in Chisinau imitates the older cathedral in Odessa, Ukraine. Interior is typically ornamental and beautiful. A must see to a visitor in Chisinau.

Straight in the centre is this beautiful cathedral. I just popped in without any preparation and I was flashed by the gold and paintings. Great experience.

Small church, but very nice and rich in decorations. It is a must see while visiting Chisinau. If you are traveling by car, there are plenty of parking places nearby by the side of the road.

The inside is quite different than the outside and came as a surprise to me. A lot of icons and a great front wall in shining gold. As usual, wear modest clothes. Women will find scarfs to borrow and men should not wear shorts. At...More

The crisp white Orthodox Cathedral and nearby bell tower dominate the central park square but are actually quite small themselves. Free to enter and pretty much as expected internally, they cast a flavour of the city’s religious heritage. Worth a quick look.

I don't know what you mean by a reference number. When I was in Chisinau, the church seemed to be open during the day and you could visit it at any time. Well worth a visit.
