The Transfiguration Greek-Catholic Cathedral (EN)

  • In the centre of Cluj-Napoca, on Eroilor Street, the Franciscan-Minorite order decides to erect a church which today serves as the Greek Catholic Cathedral.
  • In 1779, with the support of Empress Maria Theresa, the Franciscan order hires the architect Johan Eberhardt Blaumann who rebuilds the church in the baroque architecture style. The church embodies in a nave form, having a polygonal altar with a façade enlarged by vertical double pilasters.
  • Inside, specific late Baroque decorative elements are found. The church was given back to the Romanian Church United with Rome, now being the Cathedral of Cluj-Gherla Episcopacy.
