This is the main Cathedral of Timisoara. It's located on the main square of the city, the Unity square, and exterior is very dominant, yet quite pretty. Its biggest flaw is that it's only open for visit ocassionaly.

Interesting building on one of the most vibrant squares of the city. Photographing the interior is forbidden.

Colloquially referred to as The Dome, St. George's Cathedral makes an impressive statement on an already outstanding square. When we visited, we were only able to peek inside as the inside doors were closed, so presumably it is only open at specific times. As Timisoara...More

I participated at a beautiful performance of carols before Christmas. Nice feelings! It is located in Union Square and is known as the Catholic Dome. Nearby are restaurants and cafes with terrace for sunny days

Frankly, more impressive from the outside. But very beautiful from the outside, dominating the beautiful square. Part of any visit to the Piata Unirii.

Just call it The Dome, like people of Timisoara do, and anyone in the city will tell you how to get there, as it is one of the local landmarks. The Catholic Dome majesticaly borders one of the sides of Union Square. It has an...More

A really stunning example of a Catholic Cathedral. However, I do struggle with the tortured, threatening message Catholic churches convey compared with the message and feelings created inside Orthodox Cathedrals and churches. Another amazing set of bells!!!

One of the most beautiful cathedrals I've ever seen! It also has a museum in the basement - it is open only on special occasions. A must see for everyone who comes in town!
