The Bob church (Romanian: Biserica Bob din Cluj, Hungarian: Bob utcai görög katolikus templom) is the first Greek-Catholic church that was built in the city of Cluj, Transylvania, at that time part of the Austrian Empire. The name of the church comes from the Romanian noble Ioan Bob, later bishop of the Romanian Greek-Catholic church, who paid for the construction of the church.
