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.

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

This cathedral is quite special inside and unlike any other church around. The colorful walls and dome is something special and definitely worth a visit.

The paintings on the walls were beautiful, and the cathedral was really big and stunning. You must see it if you go to Sibiu, it is not far from the city centre.
