One of the most beautiful exteriors of churches I've seen recently. Interior is good as well, but exterior is supreme. Not too far from the city centre.

Romanian Orthodox churches are so detailed and ornate, I'd definitely recommend a visit. There are two candle rooms off the main room and a small shrine outside. Inside there is a model of the sarcophagus one of the saints...really interesting.

Such a wonderful church, I really like the colours outside and the atmosphere around it. Inside it is also beautiful as to be expected in an Orthodox church with a tall Christmas tree. Lots of visitors and I think they are mostly locals.
