This church was well worth the 15-20 minute walk from the old town. It is one of the most impressive Orthodox churches we saw in Romania.

I strolled across the river to see this church, which stands out with its distinctive exterior and size. Members of the community were silently visiting to pray inside. It’s beautiful - well worth a visit. Very quiet and peaceful place of prayer.

It's a nice church in Sighisoara located on the Tarnava Mare River. You can admire its architecture and take some beautiful pictures there. Worth stopping by.

Located on the Tarnava Mare River, across from the medieval city, is this very dominating orthodox church. Its sheer size tempted us to enter, the dome is a sight to behold. Definitely worth a look if in the vicinity.

Even if it's located outside the citadel's walls on the Tarnava Mare's northern bank, this large Orthodox cathedral-sized church deserves a visit not only for its size, but also for the colourful interior. Even if it's not as old as the rest of the citadel's...More

Hi. I'm also a traveler, but I can tell you that you can visit this church and attend a mass even if you're not an Orthodox.
