Grand space inside, not many decorations but still lovely

Not many monuments or decorations inside like other churches but the large space is still somewhat impressive. Lovely wood alter at one side.

Dark and cold with beautiful carvings and windows. Under construction and difficult to find the doorway. Would not make a special visit just to see this church

One of the oldest and most famous churches from the city. It is a living proof of what transylvanians are able to create, compared to other parts of Romania. If you are lucky enough you could go on a tower tour, thus being able to take great photos from there.

a beautiful church which seemed out of place compared to many of the other simpler churches we saw in cluj, beautiful on the inside. the outside was nice too marred only by the fact that the entrance was undergoing some work during our visit.

I happened to visit the Church in December last year, and as mentioned in the other reviews, the Church itself is an amazing piece of architecture, with an old world charm about it. Also, with festival season just around the corner, a Christmas fare was also set up at the backside. With a temporary skating rig, and multiple entries all... More

One of my favourite places in Cluj-Napoca. It is spectuacular, inside and outside as well. I love it especially when it isn't full of people.

Beautiful together with the statue. The pic is beautiful either for a rainy or a sunny day. I read a bit about both of them right after my trip which made it more interesting. I could not go on the inside because it seemed close saturday and sunday. What a shame

During our free walking tour our guide had many stories to tell, This church had an interesting beginning. There was meant to be two towers and one fell down, as they were running out of money they just completed one. That is why the main door looks off centre, there is also a window missing. Also if you look closely... More

This is easily the most beautiful Church in Cluj-Napoca. I can't Believe we lived in this city for so long before actually getting around to visiting it. Make sure to pop inside if you get a chance to. The statues in particular are very beautiful.
