If you are in Oradea don't miss to visit the Roman Catholic Episcopal Cathedral, the largest baroque church in Romania - it's also one of the most beautiful ones in the country in my honest opinion. It is called 'Bazilica' in Romanian and 'Bazilika' in Hungarian and it is located near the city center (about 15 minutes by walking).

Address:
Sirul Canonocilor, nr.2, Oradea

Price:
The admission is free.
