Standing In the centre of the Metropolitan Complex, the Great Cathedral is housing the relics of St Parascheva, a radiant source of spiritual joy and blessings for the entire eparchy. In the environs of the monumental church are: St George’s Church (the former Metropolitan Cathedral), the Metropolitan Palace, the Metropolitan Chancery with the Dr. Iustin Moisescu Festivities Hall, the Dumitru Stăniloae Metropolitan Library, the St George Monastic Home, the Dumitru Stăniloae Faculty of Orthodox Theology and the Metropolitan Nicodim Munteanu House. The Metropolitan complex resembles a citadel, having its access gates symbolically named in accordance to events and activities of the spiritual life of the Metropolitanate: St Parascheva’s Gate (to the east, the main entrance), St. George’s Gate (to the west), St. Andrew’s Gate (to the Ștefan cel Mare și Sfânt Boulevard), St John the Theologian’s Gate (to the Faculty of Theology), and St Maximus the Confessor’s Gate.
