This is the life...?
   Orthodox Cathedral:  The first subscription in view of building an Orthodox Cathedral in Targu Mures, goes back to 1907. The construction was started on May 1925 and was finished on 2 December 1934 upon initiative and steady support of mayor Emil A. Dandea, following the design of architect Iosif Victor Vlad. Erected under the shape of a Greek cross, the church encloses a true masterpiece of Romanian church painting – the decoration of the dome is work of master Aurel Ciupe. Between 1974-1986 the internal walls were covered with frescoes executed by a group under the guidance of master Nicolae Stoica, and the dedication of the painting was performed on 11 November 1990.
The Small Cathedral: Erected on a triangular place that encloses the central square of the town from the West, the Church of the Feast of the Annunciation is a small reproduction of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome. It was built from 1926 to 1936, dedicated on 8 September 1936, and until 1948 it belonged to the Greek-Catholic Church; after that date it has been in the use of the Orthodox Church.
