Timisoara Orthodox Cathedral, Timisoara

(4.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Timisoara Orthodox Cathedral features 11 towers and seven bells, which can be heard throughout the town due to the unusual resonance of their sound. The cathedral was built in the late 1930s in the eclectic neo-Moldavian style, which combines Byzantine, Gothic, Ottoman, and Renaissance elements. Inside, notice the fragments of the 18th-century altar, executed in the Baroque style. The basement houses collections of religious objects, including rare books, icons, and paintings. Search for bullet marks on the steps in front of the cathedral, which are part of the story of the people's revolution that started in Timisoara.
