Prezentare generala

The church was built in 1858 by Anastase Ciuflea merchant, after his deceased brother's desire, Theodore, who became better known after the founders, Ciuflea. The building has the appearance determined by using the reconstruction of the early twentieth century Russo-Byzantine style, dominated by a series of large and small domes, all crowned as onion-shaped domes. Plastic decoration is inspired, as spatial forms of Moscow architecture - arches on the cornice and arches in the brace, Russian baroque cornice above the windows and doors, all we have integrated the ancient part of the church, getting into a unified artistic expression. It was an ordinary parish church until the early '60s, when it received after the closing of the current status of the cathedral city Nativity.
