#1 of 1 Sights & Landmarks in Harman
The lady who runs it is very friendly and knowledgeable and the climb to the bell tower is very rewarding with little porthole doors that allow for some stunning photographs.
The church is a good example of a fortified Saxon church, the chapel in the walls had great frescoes.

We had the very good fortune of engaging with the knowledgeable Sister Nicoletta who imparted a treasure trove of information about the icons, symbolism, church history and beliefs.
This was my first time inside of an Orthodox Cathedral and I must say that it is huge and very well located, close to the river and some nice restaurants, it is a must "stop by" in Timisoara.

The church was designed by an Italian architect Vaseleli and the paintings executed by the Romanian painter Marvu Mutu, with additional 19th century paintings by Marian Popp.
It is place that I often visit because I feel the presence of God through His saints: Saint George, Saint Nicholas, Saint Marina and the Saint Brancoveni Martyrs.

Beautiful church in a gothic style, impressive and very big, situated in the centre of the city where there is Mathias statue and a large square.
It's Gothic style charm is rather unique in the area since it is a Roman Catholic church and most other churches are orthodox.

We recommend everyone to take a moment and absorb the beauty of the interior and mentally compare it to the cathedrals and churches in western Europe.
It is a fully worshipping church and there were many people having blessings from the priest, as well as those who came to pray on a mid week morning.

The church itself is relatively plain yet still beautiful, however at the back are steps up to the roof where you can walk into the rafters and literally climb wooden ladders higher and higher into the roof space.
Right now the clock tower is being restored so maybe soon we will be able to enter there too.
