Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul

visit Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul

There is no telling whether it is the sublime architectural style of its main building or the genuinely old cemetery in its backyard. But, architectural elements are what make the Church of the Apostles Peter and Paul so alluring. It stands at the heart of Sibiu as an invaluable landmark and a symbol of the city’s religious heritage. Romania declared it a national historic monument in the recent decade. And, its popularity only increased ever since. Also known as the Church between the Fir Trees, it is among the most visited landmarks in Sibiu that bear witness to its history.

The character of the Church of the Apostles Peter and Paul lies somewhere between its Baroque elegance and stark austerity. The latter is due to the building’s pastel yellow and creamy white combination. It creates a photogenic contrast with the verdant backdrop. Inside, however, there is no sign of its characteristic simplicity. Its main hall features ornaments from head to toe. Vivid frescoes and ornate columns complement its fancy design. The exuberance of Rococo architecture is the dominant style in this part of the church.

The picturesque backyard provides a refreshing break from the theatrical appearance of the interior. Surrounding the church, there are several tombs belonging to some of Romania’s significant cultural and religious figures. As you observe walk among them, you will be reminded of the efforts made for a united Romanian church.
