The Reformed-Calvinist Church “Turda Veche” Turda

In the center of Turda, there is the current Reformed-Calvinist church “Turda Veche”. The church was built on the site of the former Augustinian monastery which ended in 1550-1560. The church preserves the central nave of the Augustinian church with the elements specific to the Gothic style that can be found on the west façade, with five buttresses on the north façade. During the Middle Ages this church was located at the southern end of the medieval city. During General Basta’s rule in Transylvania, the church suffered significant damage. It was rebuilt in the 17th century with the support of Prince George Rákóczi I and became a Reformed-Calvinist church. During the war of the Kuruts, it suffered other damages, and it will be rebuilt in the next century.

 The pipe organ in the church dates from 1812. The most beautiful element of the interior is the pulpit carved in 1824 in gray marble by the sculptor Antal Csűrös. The monumental clock tower is approx. 60 meters and was built between 1904-1906.
