Ursuline Church

This church, on Str. General Magheru, is the Ursuline Church. It is, as far as I know, Roman Catholic, but is known as the Ursuline church as it was taken over in 1755 by Ursuline nuns. Prior to that it was firstly a Dominican monastery and then taken over by the Lutherans, where it was known as Klosterkirche.

PS Thanks to everyone who has visited and left comments recently, I do really appreciate it. I am snowed under at work but hopefully after my evil deadline (next Monday) is out of the way I will be able to return the favour and visit your blogs 🙂
