Densuş church

The Densuş church, located in the Romanian Hunedoara county is one of Romania`s most fascinating old monuments. Built in the 13th century, it is one of the oldest byzantine rite churches in the country. The “Saint Nicholas” church, as it is called, was built on the ruins of an ancient construction of the 6th century. It was built with rocks brought from the Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa, which was the capital and the largest city of the Roman Dacia (a Roman province). The church is 30 m long and 18 m high. When I took these photos, you were not allowed to photograph inside. The 1443 mural paintings are in a bad state, as they were partially destroyed by “witches” in the area. It is really a wonderful monument and worth visiting, or participating in church, as it is the oldest church in the country where services are still officiated.
