The cathedral has a nice structure, paintings and interesting seats to be seen. No fee has to be paid.

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.

A free entry to the orthodox cathedral invites you a scene of wonderful interiors with paintings all over. A walkable distance from the market square, its tucked away in between residential houses. Worth a visit.

Not a large cathedral, but very ornate inside. Lots of frescoes and paintings adorn the walls and roof.

A typical orthodox church building with frescoes and stinking of incense. This is the church for the Roumanian speakers of Hermannstadt.
