Biserica Ortodoxă Sfinții Mihail şi Gavril din Turda (RO)
St. Michael and Gabriel Orthodox Church from Turda (EN)

  • Shortest distance from Cluj-Napoca: ~35 km.
  • In the centre of Turda municipality, on Andrei Şaguna Street, on a land donated by the Romanian Church United with Rome, a monumental Orthodox church in neo-byzantine style was erected between 1926 and 1935. The edifice was built according to the plans of the architect Ioan Traianescu.
  • The paintings and the icons were completed in 1938 and represent the works of two important painters of the time - Paul Molda and Gheorghe Belizarie. The original plan included a painting that portrayed the King Carol II in a commandant of mountain hunter uniform with the cape of the Order of Mihai Viteazul (Michael the Brave).
  • An original element is the bell tower, built in an Oltenian tower shape – as homage brought to Prince Michael the Brave. Inside, a sustaining pattern of the Moldavian arches is applied, which has led to an opening of 5.40 meters in diameter of the central spire.
