An imposing building raised in the Avram Iancu Square, the Orthodox Cathedral is dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos. Impressive building, the 3rd like height from Romania. Beautiful elements of architecture and paintings.

The plaza itself is very beautiful, as well as the fountain. The theater is also across the street. The church is nice, but maintenance work is being done. Not a big fab of the statue itself, but surely worth taking a picture

It's an imposing cathedral located in the center of Cluj. You can admire its beautiful architecture and take some pictures outside. Unfortunately it's not as nice as you expect it to be inside. Some restoration work is being done.

During our free walking tour we got to hear many interesting stories surrounding some of the sites/attractions of Cluj. This is a very striking cathedral, built in the Brancovenesc style (that evolved during the 1600 and 1700's). Not particuarly old as it was built a...More
