About The Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral

The cathedral was built between 1923-1933, representing the Romanian stylistic current. It is one of the most important religious buildings from Cluj Napoca municipality.

The church is dedicated to the Assumption - the date in which the Romanian Army entered Transylvania (15th of August 1916).

In 1973, when the Diocesan See of Cluj was made Archiepiscopate, the church became archipepiscolap cathedral.

The Ortodox Archiepiscopate of Cluj holds an important collection of religious and documentary art, which were inaugurated in 1938 and reorganized in 1975. The main fund consists of painted icons from 17th -19th centuries and liturgical objects. The museum collection includes documents regarding the history of the diocese (16th century), religious objects, icons on wood and glass (17th century), manuscripts, vestments, crosses, chalices (16th century), ethnographic printings and testimonies about the Romanian people past.
