Squashed in amongst other buildings a little way from the heart of Sibiu, the Orthodox Cathedral, built in the early 20th century, is unusually plain on the outside for an Orthodox church, the façade being narrow alternating bands of cream and terracotta bricks with few other decorations other than a series of icons in the arch over the entrance door.

This does not prepare you for the magnificence of the interior, breath-taking in its beauty, richly decorated all over with the most impressive murals of Jesus, saints, martyrs and angels. The iconostasis is even more stunning than in most Orthodox cathedrals.

An absolute must-see if you are in Sibiu.

It's an up-scale view of an orthodox church. It's huge and impressive in that sense, but painting-wise not very different from other similar places. Worth seeing if in town.

Entrance here is free which was a nice surprise considering a lot of churches/cathedrals in this region charge for entry. Very beautiful unique interior, definitely worth visiting. The shop on site was also very pleasant.

Possibly not a place for very young children as people were praying and it was important to keep quiet, but if you have kids that understand this then shouldn't be a problem.
