Owner description: This is the second largest Orthodox Cathedral in Romania.
Reviewed 5 June 2017

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.

Be very quiet and respectful. This church is still used by locals all the time. I daily walked by this church and was always stunned by it's beauty!

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.
The interior is vast and the icons are painted in bright colours, things which makes a walk from the Old Town to worth it just to visit this cathedral.
