To the left from the esplanade in front of the Cathedral there is the edifice that accommodates the Metropolitan Chancery. On the lower ground floor there are the Metropolitan Archive and the Historical Section of the Dumitru Stăniloae Metropolitan Library. From the entrance hall going right one finds the entrance to the Dr. Iustin Moisescu Festivity Hall, which hosts periodically conferences, symposia and other important events in the life of the Metropolitanate. It is a tall and large 250-seat hall, naturally illuminated through 12 large and 12 small windows, symmetrically place toward east and west, or by means of the artificial light generated by 72 light bulbs set in hexagonal recesses.
