  • High pillars, beautiful pulpit, painted windows and so on, was what met us when we entered this church. To visit this nice church can be recommended.

  • One of the landmarks in Cluj Napoca, in the central piazza, but now under restoration. Very nice views, great for walks. Restaurants around.  more »
  • I liked the exterior, quite imposing. But there is a lot of renovating going around and I could not see the inside  more »

  • Absolutely beautiful gothic catholic cathedral. If you like grand churches this is a must see. Beautiful but understated at the same time.
  • The Church which you can't miss. Built in Gothic Style is a Roman Catholic church in the center of Cluj. The oldest of its section is the altar inaugurated in 1390.
  • The best church in town always and forever.
  • We went for Sunday evening Mass and loved it. The interior is beautiful, the choir is breathtaking and the sense of Hungarian community is very powerful. As English speakers we could not understand the sermon but it did not matter, we were grateful to be welcomed. Thank you! Check their website for Mass times, Google translated it into our language for us.
  • They are renovating it but it's a great historical place
