Why locals love it

Able to fit 5,000 worshippers at once under its 9 towers, the Orthodox cathedral was begun in 1936 by the last king of Romania, Michael I. Finished in 1941, it is the tallest orthodox church in the world outside of Georgia and Russia.

Why you should visit it

Its unique design is inspired from the medieval byzantine churches of Moldavia (eastern Romania). A visit is a great way to experience what an orthodox church looks like!

Special tip

Try to go during mass to get the full experience. But don't stay too long, the city needs exploring!
