11-interiorul-bisericii-roznovThe church “St Nicolae” Roznov, located in the middle of Roznov attracts tourists with its location and unique architecture. The past of this church is different from most churches simply because this is a burial place for a famous family of boyars: Roznovanu.

The interior of the church impresses through its paintings, the furniture and the sculpting. The painting was made between 1913 and 1915 by Costin Petrescu from the Belle Arte School from Bucharest. The painting is made in a Byzantine style with alternating blue and gold. The painter is the one that also made the interior fresco from the Romanian Athenaeum from Bucharest. On the arch above the altar there is a beautiful painting with Mary Mother of God sitting on a throne The entire interior painting was restored in 1978 by Avachian, an apprentice of Costin Petrescu.

The iconostasis is made of golden bronze with sculpting. The main colors are gold, white and blue. The most important religious icons are dressed in silver and surrounded by icons of the twelve apostles. The icons are oil paintings in a Russian style on metal plates. On the doors that enter the altar are painting the four evangelists and the religious icon of the Good News and above the Latest Supper.

The interior furniture is made of oak and sculpted by students of the Superior Art School and Trades from Bucharest.
