Why locals love it

The main place of worship for catholics, this cathedral is also plainly called "The Dome" by locals. It was built in the 1700s while Timisoara was under Austro-Hungarian rule, by Viennese architects. Its plush interior has 9 altars and an Austrian made organ that makes a fabulous sound when played at concerts.

Why you should visit it

It's one of the main attractions in Union Square and a peak inside is a must! The Dome holds services in German, Hungarian and Romanian.
Due to the great acoustics here, if you get a chance, you can try out a concert or two.

Special tip

If visiting during summer, head in for a visit - it's nice and cool inside! If here in the winter time, try to catch a carol concert, it sounds great!
