Saints Paul and Peter Cathedral, Constanta
(4.6/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, Constanţa, located at 25 Arhiepiscopiei Street, Constanţa, Romania, is the seat of the Romanian Orthodox Archbishop of Tomis, as well as a monastery. Situated between Ovid Square and the Black Sea in front of the Archbishop's Palace, it was built on the city's peninsular zone in 1883-85 following plans by architect Ion Mincu. The cornerstone was laid on 4 September 1883, during the reign of Iosif Gheorghian, Metropolitan of All Romania. The church was consecrated on 22 May 1895.The building served as a parish church until 1923, when the Diocese of Constanţa was established. In that year it became a cathedral, serving as such until 3 August 1941, when its altar and iconostasis, along with icons and paintings, were partly destroyed by aerial bombardment during World War II. It was restored after the war, from 1946-51. Patriarch Justinian Marina and Bishop Chesarie Păunescu re-consecrated it on 14 January 1951; at that time, Păunescu's seat was moved from Constanţa to Galaţi and the building once again became a parish church. Exterior repairs took place from 1957-59. When the diocese at Galaţi became an archdiocese on 9 November 1975, a vicar bishop began serving at Constanţa, returning the church to the status of cathedral, once again becoming an archdiocesan cathedral when the Tomis Archdiocese was revived in 1990.

  • We fell in full baptism and we were welcomed as guests. The Cathedral is typical of churches in the region. A must see.

  • Like all Eastern Orthodox, the inside is filled with wonderful paintings. An easy walk from Ovidius Square and another easy walk to the Casino on the Black Sea. 
  • It is 100 metres from the casino. It is a good example of Church. beautiful images. the area around is quite ruinous, but the Church is in good condition
