Saint Nicholas Coast Church, SlatinaCod 1661

The parish church was built and painted between 1883-1889, being founded by merchant Iorgu Anghelescu with the amount of 15,000 gold coins, which he bequeathed to Slatina’s City Hall, with the mention that should be used only for building a Church. It was built on the place of a church that had the same patron, dating back to 1700 and being called St. Nicholas from the Fair, because between the church and the current city hall was organized the Fair of the week. The church’s inscription is a testimony of the dates mentioned:
