The Catedrala Domnului is located across from the main Parliament/Government building downtown. The inside is quite old and very beautiful. Several interesting parks and squares are all within walking distance. An open air sidewalk market is close by to pick up old soviet trinkets.

You should not miss for visiting this Cathedral because it is in the middle of the city and near Sel Mare Boulevard. The Park is also nice for having fresh air. Cathedral was renovated and now the interior is impressive. Moldova history is there.

This is a beautiful building in the middle of Stefan cel Mare Park. Paintings adorning the walls inside are beautiful. You may also find young students outside painting this church, some very talented young people

Lovely cathedral with absolutely stunning artwork inside - they do not like you taking pictures though. The choir were singing when I was there and I spent about an hour and a half just listening.
