A remarkable church with mixture of extraordinary lacery in stone wich adorns the facades, from bottom to the top of the derricks. You can count more than 30 non repeating decorative motives - gothic, eastern style, armenian, georgian, arabian etc.

Interior is dim and nice enough for a church. Photos forbidden inside. But the exterior has incredible stonework and it's even lovelier at night when lit up.

The newly renovated church it's a peace and quite green spot in the middle of the city. The architecture is amazing. It is conveniently situated at the end of Stefan cel Mare walk near other landmarks, some good restaurants and Palas Shopping Mall.

Having a totally unique style, both the outside and the inside of the building are spectacular. On the outside you could see all the different patterns carefully carved in stone by great artists of the time.
