Not a large cathedral, but very ornate inside. Lots of frescoes and paintings adorn the walls and roof.

This was one of my favorite churches to visit! Absolutely gorgeous! They have a small shop outside that is a great place to pick up beautiful Orthodox items!

A typical orthodox church building with frescoes and stinking of incense. This is the church for the Roumanian speakers of Hermannstadt.

This cathedral is quite special inside and unlike any other church around. The colorful walls and dome is something special and definitely worth a visit.

The paintings on the walls were beautiful, and the cathedral was really big and stunning. You must see it if you go to Sibiu, it is not far from the city centre.

The Orthodox Catheral in Sibiu may not be the oldest religious building in the town, but it still quite important due to its size and its beautiful Neo-Byzantine architecture, that makes you think for a moment that you're in front of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul....More
