Tourist Attractions Cluj-Napoca

Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral

Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral was built between 1920-1930, by architect George Cristinel and Constantin Pomponiu, which incorporated some of the Brancovan architecture models, Romanian country-specific and can be seen strong Byzantine influences.
On November 5, 1933 the dedication of the cathedral took place, officiated by the Romanian Patriarch Miron Cristea, together with Nicolae Balan Metropolitan of Transylvania and Bishop of Cluj, Nicolae Ivan.

The basement houses a crypt where were buried Nicolae Ivan Bishop, Herineanu Teofil Archbishop and Bartolomeu Anania Metropolitan. Inside the church you can admire paintings painted by teachers Anastasie Demian and Catullus Bogdan, from the Academy of Art, between 1928 to 1933.

Cluj Citadel
