Resembling the Greek church in Vienna, the Catedrala Ortodoxa Adormirea Maicii Domnului was built in 1894 by using donations from 114 families that resided in Brasov. A burst of colours welcomes you into the church with gorgeously decorated interiors complete with a golden main altarpiece, intricately designed domes and ceiling, dainty chandeliers and wooden panels that cover the entire height of the side walls. The Byzantine architecture and design of the place has made it one of the most beautiful churches in the city!
The main altar steal the show with gorgeous frescoes held by ornately decorated metal frames but look closer and you see that the entire church is an art piece in itself! See the high arches at the entrance, the central nave, the carpets and the humble seating area and you have time-travelled to another world all together! The church does have concerts on special days and if you can, do make sure you catch a performance here.

Catedrala Ortodoxa Adormirea Maicii Domnului Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful Orthodox Church. Only this church and st Nicholas is open on Monday. Beautiful paintings inside but I honestly could not handle the smell. It was so strong similar to a neroli, had to leave immediately.
A very pretty Orthodox church just off the main square. It's not very old but it has a lot of colorful frescos. Entry is free of charge and you can take all the pictures that you want.
Beautiful church, worth having a look inside
Amazing place. Worth to see during sightseeing Brasov.
Wonderful orthodox church. Always full of people.
