Religions of Romania

I was raised in the “Bible Belt” of United States, where you can find some kind of Protestant church building on just about every street corner (so it seems). The “Bible Belt” covers practically all of the south-eastern and south-central states.

In Romania, however, this is not the case. Church buildings are generally more spread out, and the majority of them are for those who follow the Eastern Orthodox religion rather than Protestantism.

Below are some pIctures I took of church buildings in Sălaj County, which is in the northwestern region of Romania. (I apologize for the quality of the last four photos. I was on a bus when I took them, hence the odd reflections.)

I really love the architectural style of these church buildings. Don’t you?

  1. Wow. I had no idea that the Eastern Orthodox church was so predominant in Romania.

    By the way, cool interactive infographic.
