Being with a foreign couple we made this mistake and we visited this impressive historical monument, impressive - from outside.... Inside, nothing special except a series of Persian carpets, around 200 years old (dirty enough, with a clear time shade... More

The Church is magnificent, but what makes it special is the whole square where it's situated. The old historical center is just incredible and here you can find lots of restaurants where you can serve a good meal.

This is a historical monument you really have to see it, if you travel in Brasov. Brasov is now maybe the most beautiful and cleanest city in Romania...

A magnificent church from the outside especially from a distance or height for example seen from the citadel. Well worth seeing the inside also.

It is one of the symbols of Brasov, very beautiful, in reconstruction in this times, but i guess it is something necessary if you want to preserve something so beautiful. you can still take some photos if you want to.

One of the largest Gothic churches in Eastern Europe. Unbelievable pipe organ, gorgeous tapestries. It is is worth to walk around and enjoy the past. The clock outside is breathtaking. Also equally fun is to walk around town and the grand bastion and the black tower. Brasov is charming and so walkable. Spend some time visiting it!
