Sibiu - Romania's Orthodox Cathedral

    Prev Next

    Built between 1902 – 1906 in a similar style with the Saint Sofia Cathedral from Istanbul.
    On this place was a Greek Church built in 1778.
    The architects were Virgil Nagy and Iosif Kamner from Budapest.
    Fresco paintings were made by Octavian Smigelschi and Arthur Coulin.
    The interior is dominated by a massive gold chandelier, about which swirl wisp of incense and neo Byzantine decorations.
    At the entrance a massive carved door that bears a German insignia.
    This is the second largest Orthodox Cathedral in Romania.
