The church is one of the most emblematic buildings in Sibiu, being often confused with the Tower of the Council (Turnul Sfatului) by new visitors. The church is quite sober and dark inside, keeping the same traditional Saxon churches style, but what is the most interresting thing about it is its tower; the climbing looks quite dangerous and thrilling due...

A very imposing cathedral. The tower is impressive and foreboding as the four turrets on the top indicate to all that enter that the town had the right to sentence death. The interior is no where as ornate as its catholic cousin in the square, however very in keeping with the gothic style. Currently there is an art exhibition in... More

Gothic cathedral was built in the 14th century on the location of another 12th-century church. Is the most famous Gothic-style church in Sibiu.
