“Surprisingly Great”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I really don't know why it's not rated higher. The exterior is lovely two colored brick and the interior is simply stunning! The frescos are bright and vibrant. It can be hard to capture pictures due to the windows and lighting but don't let that stop you from enjoying it. It makes me want to visit the other painted churches in Romania.

“Fabulous Art”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We stumbled on the cathedral while out for a walk. Built between 1902 and 1906, this was a gorgeous example of art and architecture. It would have been great to attend a service at the church.

“Nothing Orthodox here.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

It took me several attempts to get in here due to the religious holidays that were on during my visit, but it was worth the effort. The frescos are breathtaking

“don`t get them mixed up!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Some of the reviews on this page might be a little confusing! The Orthodox Cathedral is on Strada Mitropoliei, a few minutes stroll from the main Square (Piata Mare). The church in the main square is the Roman Catholic Parish Church. Both are equally beautiful, but in different ways. Visit also the Franciscan Church, tucked away down a quiet cobbled side street. The exterior has been recently restored. The one time monastic building adjoins the church.
