The edifice was built in 1885 in the eclectic style for the seminar and for the Orthodox theology, unified in 1876. The land was put at the disposal of the church by the Viennese baron Sina, and because of that, during the interwar period the street with the church was named after him. The building has elements of the classicist and the Renaissance styles. The monumental building with two floors has in the central part an imposing dome, having also a large festivities hall. During the interwar period the seminar turned into a faculty of theology of four years. The bust of Teodor Ceontea (1847-1906), a famous teacher, biologist, author of textbooks was unveiled in the schoolyard in 1912. A beautiful wooden church was built next to the schoolyard, building with a typical Romanian architecture.
