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.

The building is big, well cared for, with a lot of paintings and other nice ornaments. During ceremony can be even more impressive as the sound resonates in the entire building.

It's a must-see in Alba Iulia. I entered it during a ceremony on Sunday morning and stayed for a while - it makes a great impression to see the beautiful walls and pictures inside and hear the othodox prayers at the same time.
