The cathedral lies right by Timisoara's city centre. Very beautiful cathedral especially from the inside where it's made of Gold. We watched a prayer there and it was so spiritual. So basically there aren't many places to visit in Timisoara, but this Cathedral was an exception. It was beautiful to see.

The cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Timișoara and Metropolis of Banat. It is dedicated to the Three Holy Hierarchs, Saints Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, and John Chrysostom.

This is probably the most imposing thing to see in Timisoara. The Church overlooks the downtown area and is so beautiful in style and architecture. One can feel peace and tranquility inside.

We are really lucky to see this monument just in the right time: it was the first thing we saw when we were out of the train station. There was a big noise and the bells of the cathedral was ringing constantly! We thought something is wrong and even thought a fire or a problem... But, when we get closer,... More

It's not only an architecture masterpiece, it's the heart of the city, too. And the simbol of the Timisoara Revolution of '89. Few minutes inside will bring you peace of mind and will give you the occasion to see the wonderful decorations.

The cathedral is a beautiful and tranquil place of worship.A door at the back leads down to a wonderful museum full of interesting icons.You enter by ringing a bell and one of the sisters will open the door and talk about the items in the museum.It is fascinating and we learnt a lot from our very enthusiastic guide.I'm sure this...

A beautiful and attractive orthodox cathedral on the outside. And equally stunning in the interior. It has a most peaceful atmosphere inside. It also dominates the main square in Timosoara, beautifully framing it.
