The building is more than 250 old and has a beautiful interior with gorgeous religious paintings of saints that touch the heart and soul.

Kinetic Fountain

The fountain is situated in the city's civic centre and it is the "brainchild" of the famous Romanian sculptor Constantin Lucaci, also known as the "2nd Brancusi".
