Cathedrals are alway a go to stop when I’m visiting a city. This cathedral was a nice surprise when visiting Chisinau and the park like atmosphere was equally nice.

I like it very much inside and after visiting it we ate at a little restaurant nearby. If you're visiting Chisinau you should visit it. It's in the center of the town and you can park nearby.

This is a lovely cathedral with free entry and worth a visit whilst in the centre of Chisinau. Lovely decoration inside but no photos allowed. The arch on Stefan Cel Mare street can be seen just in front to the cathedral

This is an Orthodox church and is right at the Central Park in Chisinau. I went inside but photography is not allowed so I took a photo of the altar from the outside. There is a belfry and a fountain just outside. Nice to watch...More
