biserica cu luna
Biserica ortodoxa "Adormirea Maicii Domnului" este popular cunoscuta sub numele de Biserica cu Luna. Intre asezarea pietrei de temelie in 1784 (anul rascoalei lui Horea) si finalizarea constructiei au trebuit sa se scurga 6 ani. Arhiectul cladirii, Iacob Eder i-a prezentat planurile constructorului Ioann Lins, care cu fonduri strinse de la greci, romani si sirbi s-a pus pe treaba. La 1790, biserica era singura cu turn din Orasul Nou. Biserica este caracteristica, dupa spusele lui Peter I. Zoltan, planimetriei bizantine. Mecanismul din turn a fost realizat de oradeanul Georg Rueppe. Constructia imbina stilurile bizantin, baroc tirziu si neoclasicist.

Oradea has 3 synagogues (just 1 in use i think) and the centeral one is very impressive and located left to the City Hall and to the Black Eagle. The building is in a very poor condition and its another thing that symbolize the great community that lived there and now is gone.
