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.

If I knew there is such an impressive monument in Brasov I would have traveled in Brasov years ago. Don't miss the opportunity to see it!

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!

I don't really see the appeal of the church. From the outside, it is just a church. For some reason, the area surrounding it isn't paved. From the inside it also is merely a church. Granted, it has a huge organ and some nice tapestries but that's it. If you are in the area and it is open I'd recommend... More

I love the architecture of the black church both on the outside and on the inside. It is a must to see in brasov if you ever go there. It is also a must to go see a pipe organ concert inside the church - it is just un-real. (not sure when they are but you can easily find that... More

Located in the city center of Brasov (Kronstadt). It has been renovated and contains a very old, nice and functioning orgue. Concerts are being performed from time to timea in the church. Near the chuch, you can find the german school " Johanes Honterus". Close to the church is the old cityhall market of Brasov. You'll love this city!

If you are in the area worth visiting, but it's just a church, a black one. This is one of the oldest and largest Gothic churches in Eastern Europe.

I also did not get to go inside due to being closed on October 31st. However this church is still quite neat outside and deserves a look if you have a chance!

The church is very impressive. It is at the center of the town and is near to other places that you can visit. I recommend you to visit the city lift too.
