Romania - The Cathedral of National Redemption

A new cathedral is being built in the center of Bucharest at a cost of 200 million euros. Conflict has risen over the government’s decision to provide financial support to the project while closing a number of hospitals.


Baustelle für Bau der Kathedrale zur Erlösung des Volkes

Construction work on the Cathedral of National Redemption is progressing at full speed. It will be 125 meters high and dwarf the People’s Palace built by Nicolae Ceaucescu. The dictator had a number of churches destroyed in the 1980s, and today’s government is eager for friendly relations with the Orthodox Church. Belief plays a major role in Romanian society, and is for many people an important comfort in their poverty-stricken lives.
