Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
Timisoara Orthodox Cathedral features 11 towers and seven bells, which can be heard throughout the town due to the unusual resonance of their sound. The cathedral was built in the late 1930s in the eclectic neo-Moldavian style, which combines Byzantine, Gothic, Ottoman, and Renaissance elements. Inside, notice the fragments of the 18th-century altar, executed in the Baroque style. The basement houses collections of religious objects, including rare books, icons, and paintings. Search for bullet marks on the steps in front of the cathedral, which are part of the story of the people's revolution that started in Timisoara.

  • Beautiful place to see in the Temisvar center. Around the building is a beautiful park where you can rest during hot days. I enjoyed visiting this church.
  • Quite a magnificent sight to see both from the outside and inside. There are huge chandeliers within and a seat for i assume every member of their council with names for each person on the seats. You also have a gift shop inside if you want to buy some memento. Worth a visit and look around for sure!
