City Guide The Reformed Church

The Reformed Church

The Reformed Church, on Lupului Street, is a late gothic historical monument of great religious and architecture importance. The church was built in many stages, as a monastery for the Minorite – Franciscan monks, promoted and supported by king Matia Corvinul, starting by the second half of the 15th century.

It has undergone many changes over time. At the middle of the 16th century, it was taken over by the reformed believers. The church is the greatest gothic construction with a single nave (hall church) from Transylvania.

It has a wooden ceiling and pieces of rare beauty, among which the carved wooden pulpit, made in 1646 by Elias Nicolai from Sibiu and Benedek, a carver. It is created in the Transylvanian Renaissance (Flower Renaissance) style.

Famous for its acoustics, it houses lots of organ concerts. In the southern part of the church we can find the ruins of the cloister, which functioned as a university college.
