The Dormition of the Theotokos Cathedral (Romanian: Catedrala Adormirea Maicii Domnului) is the most famous Romanian Orthodox church of Cluj-Napoca. Built in a Romanian Brâncovenesc style, a synthesis of Renaissance and Byzantine architecture, it lies on the Avram Iancu Square, together with the Cluj-Napoca National Theatre .

The cathedral was built between 1923 and 1933, after the Union of Transylvania with the Romanian Old Kingdom. The project of the cathedral was developed by the architects George Cristinel and Constantin Pomponiu. On 5 November 1933 the Cathedral was officially opened by Miron Cristea, the Patriarch of All Romania.
