“Nice Cathedral in the centre of the city”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I visited this Cathedral when I visited Chisinau and from the outside it doesn't look that impressive, but once you go inside it's beautifully decorated.

It's worth a visit and a couple of snaps for the holiday photo album.

Happy Traveling.

“Worht the visit”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Since it is sitting in the middle of town, you can't miss it, and should visit it for a few minutes. There ae much finer churches in Moldova, but most are off the beaten path. This is the reconstruct of the original building.

“Center of the City”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This large cathedral is at the very center of the city and dominates the people's plaza with a large square for sitting and strolling. Inside is a traditional orthodox cathedral with icons and the trappings. There is a sales store in the adjacent bell tower. Lovely walking park surrounds the Cathedral with many benches. Good park for children.

“A Small Gem”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

It's not large, but every surface is covered with well-executed, colorful murals. The church is immaculately clean and still in use as a hub of religion for the city.
