A stunning building both inside and out, I really wanted to lie on the floor on my back with a pair of binoculars to study the ceiling !!( I didn't it would be disrespectful) Awesome beautiful paintings, Friday evening before closing was quiet but Saturday morning there was a wedding which was lovely to watch.
A first rate attraction

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

Sibiu was only meant to be an overnight stop on our trip, but I was surprised by how cosy this little town is. This cathedral was really the only thing on my list for Sibiu and it did not disappoint. We arrived a hour before closing (which is the best time to go by the way, as it was packed with people the morning after) and the place was as good as empty. The architecture is just stunning and as it wasn't much going on, we were free to walk around and have a proper look at everything. Highly recommend if you're in Sibiu.

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!
