Show sight on map

The Church of the Piarists, originally known as the Church of the Jesuits in Cluj, respectively as the University Church, located on Strada Universitatii nr. 5, dedicated to the "Holy Trinity", is the first Catholic church built in Transylvania after the Protestant Reformation, at the same time the first baroque ecclesiastical edifice in the former Hapsburg province. The church was an architectural ensemble with the Jesuit academic college, on the place of which is today the central building of the "Babeș-Bolyai" University. The place of worship presents a stark contrast between a monumental and sober architecture on the outside, and a well-ornamented interior, almost exuberant, a jewel of the Baroque style. In front of the church there was, until 1959, the statue of the Virgin Mary, a monument moved by the communist authorities to the back of the "St. Peter" Church in Cluj.
