The cathedral is beautiful and well maintained. The location makes it easy to spot. In the basement there is a small museum which can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday.

Very sumptuous, but not crushing. Beautiful paintings and icons. Perfect location in the old center of the town.

One of the things to see in Cluj, take a walk around and stop and contemplate, would be lovely to be there during summer.

I prefer the outside of this cathedral to the inside... but the chandeliers are pretty! Surroundings of course are nice as well :)

An imposing building raised in the Avram Iancu Square, the Orthodox Cathedral is dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos. Impressive building, the 3rd like height from Romania. Beautiful elements of architecture and paintings.

The plaza itself is very beautiful, as well as the fountain. The theater is also across the street. The church is nice, but maintenance work is being done. Not a big fab of the statue itself, but surely worth taking a picture

It's an imposing cathedral located in the center of Cluj. You can admire its beautiful architecture and take some pictures outside. Unfortunately it's not as nice as you expect it to be inside. Some restoration work is being done.

The Dormition of the Theotokos Cathedral (Catedrala Adormirea Maicii Domnului) is awesome. It is a shame that extensive restoration work was taking place during my visit.

The dome of the cathedral is in danger of collapse and big steel structures inside support the dome which spoils the whole building. A new cathedral is being built but is taking a long time to complete. A baptism of a baby was taking place...More

Impressive building at one end of Avram Iancu square. Pleasant interior with small chapels at each side decorated in mosaic. Smaller ante-chambers for lighting if candles.
