Orthodox Cathedral, Sibiu

(4.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
The red-and-yellow brick building of Orthodox Cathedral, topped with a copper roof and decorated with round mosaics depicting Jesus and the four evangelists, represents the seat of the Romanian Orthodox Archbishop. The architecture of this early 20th-century cathedral combines the elements of a Byzantine basilica with Baroque influences. Its main entrance is flanked by two tall towers with skylights ending in double bulbs. Above the entrance, notice an arched stained-glass window with a scene from the Old Testament depicting three angels seated at the table--representing the Holy Trinity. A massive gold chandelier beneath the central dome and the three-story golden iconostasis dominate the interior. The walls and ceilings are covered with neo-Byzantine frescoes. With our custom trip planner, Sibiu attractions like Orthodox Cathedral can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The Church is situated at the edge of the historical city centre and impresses with its size (especially of the twin kampanariwn of the facade), but also in the Interior. There dominates the large dome, richly decorated with religious icons, like the rest of the Interior of the temple. Impressive marmarostrwseis on the floor, Golden Temple with three rows of pictures and gold plated capitals. Feature large stained glass of the Annunciation on the Western facade. Generally a demo available wealth, characteristic of the Greek community of the city at the beginning of the twentieth century!

  • It is a church for the Orthodox faith, interestingly build by Hungarian architect. It worth to visit the interior too. 
  • You are drawn from afar by the two attractive towers and you wonder what kind of church can it be? You certainly won’t find many, if any, Orthodox cathedrals in Romania in this architectural style. It...  more »
