Situated in the middle of Alba Iulia Citadel, this ortodox cathedral is a great historical place for romanian people. It is a busy place special on Sunday or in the religious ortodox holidays. Colorful and sparkling.

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.
