The “Bob” Church, with the patron “Ascension of the Lord” is the first Greek-Catholic church built in Cluj and the oldest Romanian church in the city.
The name comes from the bishop Ioan Bob, a Romanian noble, becoming Greek Catholic bishop of Blaj, at the expense of which the place of worship was built during 1801-1803 after the plans of the architect Joseph Leder.
The church was built in Baroque style, with a similar structure (excepting the tower) to that of the Orthodox Church on the Hill.
The wedding of Veronica Micle, a close friend of the national poet Mihai Eminescu, with Stefan Micle, future chancellor of the University of Iasi, took place in this church.
