The Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral

Sibiu, judetul Sibiu

AddressMitropoliei, 33


In the city's plan since 1875 are specified the five parcels towards Metropolitan Street and three parcels towaeds Xenopol Street that were merged, and the existing buildings here - demolished (including the modest church of the quarted) in order to build the cathedral.
The result is a large building with a symmetrical composition and a central plan that, with some modifications, (the appearance of the two tall towers on the facade), is trying to resume, at a reduced scale of course, the elevation of a Byzantine basilica.

Expressivity of the building is due to the game of organized volumes around the central area, covered with a dome, supported by other volumes covered by surfaces in quarter of a ball, and the four towers, two small, with octagonal plan attached to the nave and the other two, larger, guarding the main entrance).

The architectural expression is determined by the exterior details - apparent pressed brick (Klinker) posed on the horizontal with two alternated colors and the roofs with copper sheets. The church was founded by the Metropolitan Ioan Metianu and was built between years 1902 - 1906 by the architects Virgil Nagy and losif Kamner from Budapest.

The fresco painting of the cupola (Jesus Pantocrator), the four evangelist from the pendants and the iconostasis are the work of Octavian Smigelschi who collaborated with his good friend, painter Arthur Coulin. Other paintings (made after 1957) belong to loan Kober and to Anastase Demian, who painted the altar and the the lateral hores. The mosaics were made in Munich.
