At the time we visited the church was having extensive exterior work carried out however it was open and the interior was stunning.

Main Chisinau cathedral surrounded by pleasant park full of beaches. Visited at all hours, nothing special to see but to enjoy nice singing during the ceremony

But a lady told me I had "big big problems" because I took pictures :-). Nice frescoes. Austere exterior.

Cathedrals are alway a go to stop when I’m visiting a city. This cathedral was a nice surprise when visiting Chisinau and the park like atmosphere was equally nice.

I like it very much inside and after visiting it we ate at a little restaurant nearby. If you're visiting Chisinau you should visit it. It's in the center of the town and you can park nearby.

This is a lovely cathedral with free entry and worth a visit whilst in the centre of Chisinau. Lovely decoration inside but no photos allowed. The arch on Stefan Cel Mare street can be seen just in front to the cathedral
