Description

The Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Alexander. It was originally built out of wood, then rebuilt in 1869 and finished as it is now, in 1898. The cathedral impresses through its architectural sobriety, but also through its imposing size: 42 meters long, 26 meters wide, and a maximum height of 45 meters.

Massive, but well proportioned, it has the form of a cross, having at the entrance beautiful entrance hall guarded by Corinthian style columns. Above the narthex there are two towers, where you can find the bells and clocks. In 1897 it is bought a beautiful candelabrum worked in Vienna. The iconostasis, a true work of art, in Gothic style, 10 meters high, is made, as do the pews. In 1898 the marble mosaic floor is installed. The painting was made by painters Constantin Pascaly, Stefan Luchian and Constantin Artachino. The cathedral houses the tomb of Prince Alexandru Ghica, founder of the city of Alexandria.

In 1994, during the celebration of 160 years from the foundation of the town, Prince’s Alexandru Dimitrie Ghica sarcophagus, made from Carrara marble, was brought from Bucharest, from the Ghica Tei Church and deposed on the right, at the entrance of the Cathedral.

In 1997 the Cathedral of Saint Alexander became an Episcopal Cathedral, here is the bishopric of Alexandria and Teleorman, and the first bishop was His Holiness Galaction Stanga.

With a beautiful architectural style, an impressive, monumental building, with beautiful interior, dominated by a veil of distinguished paintings by Stefan Luchian and Constantin Artachino, the Cathedral from Alexandria is a attraction that honors the city and the county of Teleorman.
