Very impressive architecture and the square around it is also meaning to the history and freedom of the Romanian people.
The revolution against the communist system in Romania started in Timisoara. Timisoara is considered by many to be the spiritual capital of the country. It is a symbol of the revolution (and) it is a symbol of freedom.

I'm from Romania, and I'm also an orthodox guy. For me, this Cathedral is a very special place in my country. It's located in the middle downtown of Timisoara, Romania. You can also relax after visiting the church in the nearest park, from which you can admire the architecture of the building. Go there. You will be very very impressed.

I was outside the cathedral Sunday morning beginning my tourist walks around Timisoara. The cathedral was full with all kinds of people, Romanians, tourists, poor, rich, young, older etc. The place is full of energy giving a meeting point to the local society. Being in a big park is the perfect place to relax and admire the temple.

I visit this church from time to time just to admire it. Once inside, you'll hear that all the noise of the city is gone and you can have a peaceful and quiet moment with yourself. It's open most of the time during the day; by night you can only admire how it is illuminated.

You simply can't miss the Orthodox Cathedral in Timisoara placed in the very center of the town. Its bright and interesting collours - green and gold yellow - will shine in the summer sun and light up the grey of winter. It's opening took place in 1946 in the presence of King Michael I of Romania who recently attended the Easter holy ceremony in the Cathedral.
If you visit it you must also know that on the Cathedral's stairs, during the Romanian Revolution in December 1989, lots of people - mostly children - were shot and killed when the doors of the Cathedral mysteriously closed and blocked their escape inside. A monument in the shape of a cross located in the front will forever remind of the innocent blood shed those days. Say a prayer in their memory if you reach this place.
