The church is right in the middle of the town so it can't be unseen. It has 3 different architectural styles and it offers a majestic view to the nearby restaurants. Sadly, it is under construction so you can't see very much.

The architecture from the outside is not unique but very well preserved. Unfortunately they are doing a lot of maintenance and we couldn’t see the inside of this magnificent cathedral.

Very nice gothic church with great statues and beautiful stained glass. This is the tallest church tower in Romania and by the way you can climb it. A restoration began in 2018 and for 3 years will be limited access...

This is a very large church. The tower looked impressive. Some of the church was being restored so not all of it could be seen. Lovely brick work in the tower.

As always with churches built in gothic style they are really impressive. Such craftmanship to build them. Located at the big square in the city center it is hard to miss it. Would really recommend a visit.
