About Serbian Church

After the conquest of Arad by the imperial armies, ordered by Prince Eugene of Savoy, in the city was seated Serbian border guards. Serbian colonization occurred as a result of privileges granted by Emperor Leopold I to Orthodox Serbs.

Built during the years 1698-1702, wearing early Baroque imprint, manufacturers using different materials from ruins of medieval buildings of Arad. Between 1790-1822 substantial changes  have been made like increasing the length and adding the new altar. Baroque appearance of the tower was enhanced with 4 m, and also, adding a tower in Rococo style with bronze plate model and ending with a cross mounted on a gilded globe.

The church interior is remarkable due to its six frescoes (four with biblical scenes, and two historical scenes), placed on vault and executed around 1845 by the painter Nicolae Alexici. The sculptures of iconostasis are made by sculptor Mihai Ianici.
