Even if it’s not yet 100 years old, this cathedral is stunningly well-preserved and rises to its legacy. It’s guarded by the statues of Ferdinand / Maria, the Romanian king / queen coronated here. Such a beautiful place, must visit.

The newest building in the citadel (97 years old), it is an impressive building and a symbol of the union of all Romanians. Very representative for the Orthodox religion and the unique Brancovenesc architecture style.
