Saint Nicholas Church
It is an important Transylvanian architectonic ensemble, belonging to the XVIth - XVIIIth century. It had replaced a little wooden church, mentioned by documents at the end of the XVIth century. The church was restored and enlarged with the financial support provided by Walachia and Moldavia's rulers. The historical ensemble preserves valuable XVIIIth century mural painting and remarkable pieces of old Romanian art.

Actuala cladire a fost construita pe locul unei bisericute de lemn, mentionate documentar la sfarsitul secolului XVI. Cu ajutorul material al domnilor din Tara Romaneasca si Moldova biserica a fost refacuta si marita. Se pastreaza un valoros anasamblu de pictura murala din secolul XVIII si remarcabile piese de arta veche romaneasca.
