Probably the typical Oradea view, with, from left to right, the tower of the St. Nicholas Greek-Catholic Cathedral (built in 1803), Kováts House in front of it, the Greek Catholic Episcopal Palace (the red one in center, built in 1905), the former Savings Bank of Oradea, the Town Hall of Oradea (built in 1902 in an eclectic, mainly neo-Renaissance style) and finally in the foreground the St. László (Saint Ladislaus) Roman-Catholic Parish Church (built in 1717).

Coming a little closer and advancing through the Unity Place with the statue of King Ferdinand of Romania in the center.

Turning back so as to see, from left to right, “The Black Eagle” Palace (built in 1907 in Art Nouveau/Secession-style and a symbol of Oradea), the Moskovits Palace (the blueish one, built in 1910) and the “Moon Church” (Dormition of the Mother of God) Orthodox Church (built in 1784, another symbol of Oradea, having on the façade a one-meter diameter sphere painted black and gold, which is moved by a still-functioning mechanism that shows the actual moon phase).
