Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Sibiu County / Sibiu / Catedrala Ortodoxa Sfanta Treime
The red-and-yellow brick building of Catedrala Ortodoxa Sfanta Treime, 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.

Catedrala Ortodoxa Sfanta Treime reviews
Absolutely unbelievable!!! It seems to be a levitating building, in the air! More than beautiful, the iconography is in a byzantine style, of course - the source of inspiration is the Saint Sofia Cathedral from Constantinople (Istanbul) - a monument of the orthodoxy and a prove that the heaven on earth exists! Bravo!!!
Stunning frescoes inside one of the most beautiful religious buildings I've been too. For a small cathedral it is well worth a see if this type of artwork interests you.
