“Sfântul Nicolae” (Saint Nicholas) Orthodox Church

The erecting initiative of the Church St. Nicholas on Horea Street was that of Bishop Nicolae Ivan, who wanted a church in the city until the completion of the Episcopal Cathedral. The project was designed by the architect George Cristinel, and the work was supervised by the engineer Tiberiu Eremia, the one who oversaw also the workings of the Reunification Cathedral in Alba Iulia.

The works were completed in 1932. It is a Byzantine-style church, has a cross shape, the iconostasis was made in Constantinople, being donated by Queen Marie of Romania. In November 1932 it becomes the Episcopal Cathedral of Cluj until the completion of the work to the current Metropolitan Cathedral.
