Romanian architecture, amazing icons. The premise also incorporates the first school in Romanian language established in Transilvania.

A 500 year-orld orthodox church, belonging to the Romanian community, allowed by the conquerors to settle near the city, in what is now the Schei neigbourhood. Impressive architecture. In the courtyard one can see the first Romanian school in the area. A masterpiece of the Romanian presence in Brașov.

It is look like a castle if look at it from far. Next to Old Romanian School. Very good architecture in gothic style, built in 16th century. No photography allowed inside the church,.

In 1512 began to build this church, but it took some centuries to finish it. The outside of the church is very interesting, it is not comparable with other similar churches. Inside it is very nice also.

As the reviewers have noted before, it has rather unusual exterior for an orthodox church. Inside, however, it is typically orthodox, old and impressive. Also walk around the church and look for old murals on its walls and glimpse into the cemetery– it is serene, with some very beautiful views. If you have reached this church, take your time and...
