Romanian Orthodox Cathedral [Catedrala Ortodoxa Sfanta Adormire a Maicii Domnului]

Romanian Orthodox Cathedral
Built in a glaring Byzantine style, this church (or rather, the portal) sticks out between the subdued merchants' houses on Piata Sfatului. The orthodox cathedral was built in 1896, and is worth entering for the frescoes and the impressive decorations. On Saturdays, brides and grooms wait in line outside to get married here (careful to avoid glancing at each other - bad luck) and it's usually no problem if you wander in and have a look at the crowned newly weds walking around the altar three times while a choir sings Halleluja.
