Long and hard were the efforts of the Romanians from Sibiu to build a big cathedral in the centre of the town, as a symbol of their orthodox faith.

Their wish came true on the 5th of August 1902 when the first foundation stone of the future cathedral was set on the anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph I as a sign of gratitude for his support in the building of the cathedral. They say that on that day Romanians from all over Transylvania came to Sibiu to take part at the big event.

And the joy and pride of the people of Sibiu was even greater at the inauguration and consecration of the church in 1906. The cathedral dominated the entire region with its immense byzantine nave inspired by the architecture of the St. Sophia Basilica in Constantinople and its two rectangular 45 m high towers.

Through its greatness and architecture and through the beauty of the iconostasis, the cathedral is a magnet to Romanian and foreign tourists who wish to discover the secrets of the orthodox faith.
