  • There has since been a Catholic cathedral in Iasi 1753. The first church was made of wood, but a new brick Church was built in 1782-1789, but in the summer of 2017 is this church closed the pga. restoration. The old cathedral was too small, and for many years was a desire to build a larger church. The wish was realised in 1990, when the foundation stone for the Cathedral was laid. In 1998, the first exhibition is celebrated here in Catedrala Sfântă Fecioară Maria. When you look at the Church for the first time, you may well be surprised, because it does not look like most other churches. It is circular (diameter 38 exterior and 24 diameter inside), and a revelation of beauty is not seen from the outside. But on the other hand, is the really nice inside! The large, round room is bathed in coloured light that falls on the Church's beautiful décor with images in the mosaic stone. Over the altar is seen Mary's coronation. To the right and left of this altar picture be seen pictures from Maria's life. Has been set up four large images of evangelists around the Church and on the railing in front of the organ-and page galleries be seen 15 pictures of korsvejs stations. A highly successful and harmonious architectural spaces and an example of fantastic newer church construction.

  • The exterior of this sacred building with a circular plan had left me a little puzzled but I can say that, after visiting the inside, I was impressed. Very beautiful mosaic behind the altar that represents the Virgin Mary stained glass Windows filter the light and gives it a nice color. Very nice, well worth a visit.
