Biserica Baptistă maghiară
The Baptist Magyar Church
  • Architecture – Eclectic
  • Built – 1912-1913
  • Architect -

Located on 10 Aleea Ştrandului Street, the Neoprotestant church is one of the oldest Magyar Baptist buildings. It was erected between 1912 and 1913, after the plans of the Magyar architect Örömy Gyula. The actual construction was the work of construction engineer Tarr György.

Stylistically speaking, the church is Eclectic. The architectural approach is somewhat bizarre and it produced an interesting facade where Neo-Romanesque (a facade tower resembling a donjon) is intertwined with austere Secession style, visible around the cornice and the tower.

Furthermore, the Magyar Baptist church from Oradea counts on the largest community from Romania.
