1. The Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul

We start the walk from the Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul – imposing and spectacular. It is located in the civic center of the city, on Dacia Boulevard.

We will walk on Dacia Boulevard. Some benches with umbrellas are occupied in the evening by young people or by those who want to serve something outdoors. A little further to the left of this main artery of the city, you will find the city stadium. In the block area, the boulevard has 2 lanes at the beginning and is lit, then houses follow and the road has only one lane in each direction. The city looks like a classical one raised in socialism.
