Saint George Church

The greek-catholic church whose patron saint is Saint George has been declared a historical monument and it can be visited on 20 Parcul Traian Street (corner with Gen.Magheru Street). Initially, it served as a church for the Greek-Catholic Seminary, together with which it forms a single complex. Worthwhile mentioning is that on the location of the actual church there was another church dedicated to St. Egidius in 1336, later given to the Jesuits in the 16th century.

In 1858, under the rule of Bishop Szaniszló Ferenc, the edifice was reconstructed entirely in Romantic style, marked by numerous elements and architectural solutions belonging to Neo-Romanesque (especially visible at the door and window frames).

The interior organisation of the church bears the features of Orthodox Christianity, even though it functioned as an Orthodox church only from 1948, when the communist regime prohibited the Greek-Catholic Church. One can admire here oil painted icons on fabric and wood, with golden frames, together with golden wood and plaster sculptures. The sculpted door at the entrance is also to be admired by those who have an eye for beauty.
Today it functions again as Greek Catholic Church Seminary.
