  • The Church of St. Nicholas is situated in the neighbourhood Schei on Unirii Square. To reach the church you have to walk about ten minutes from Poarta Schei along the way Prundului; in order not to get lost you have to follow the signs to the old Romanian language school, located in the same courtyard of the Church. The Church is an eclectic style that takes cues from Byzantine, Gothic and Baroque styles. This was also the first Orthodox church built in Transylvania, thanks to the intervention of the voivodes of Wallachia between 1493 and 1564. The Bell Tower is from a later period, and was built in 1751. Inside there are several frescoes by Romanian painter Misu Popp. The Interior isn't particularly nice. The Church is dark and dimly lit and entering on the right there is a very big, too big, which not only sells the usual candles as in all Orthodox churches, but various objects. Beautiful the Church courtyard with the adjacent graveyard.
