The Cathedral is very beautiful inside. There are many very nice icons and they have an area with their special relics.

The Orthodox Cathedral in Sibiu is one of the largest I've seen - the high bolt (cupola) is gorgeously painted - as it's the entire church. An amazing worship place.

Located in the city center on Mitropoliei Street, walking distance from main plaza, this orthodox cathedral with a byzantine architecture is a must see in Sibiu. The exterior is the same attractive as interior. Amazing wall paintings cover all interiors. The access is free.
