The church is right in the middle of the town so it can't be unseen. It has 3 different architectural styles and it offers a majestic view to the nearby restaurants. Sadly, it is under construction so you can't see very much.

Very nice gothic church with great statues and beautiful stained glass. This is the tallest church tower in Romania and by the way you can climb it. A restoration began in 2018 and for 3 years will be limited access...

This is a very large church. The tower looked impressive. Some of the church was being restored so not all of it could be seen. Lovely brick work in the tower.

The church is located at the very heart of town. Many cafes and restaurants about it. We were entrtained by an international folklor festival that was held at the square last weekend. Nice church.
