carbonation in Romania, and maybe church, too

I am leaving for Romania in a matter of hours. I think I have all questions answered, except the following:

1. Is sparkling/carbonated water or flat water the default in Romania?
2. What words do I use to get carbonated water?
3. What is sparkling wine called there? Champagne, Sekt, Cava, Prosecco?
4. How do I ask to find the Unitarians / UUs? (Their website is broken.)

Thanks!
