Saint Nicholas

Interesting old church, I was here in the winter, not as impressive as the Black Church, but a nice experience.

A church which is well worth the visit, Just outside the old town walls a typical walled church with dwellings (in case of attack). Orthodox church with lovely artwork throughout and very welcoming staff.

It`s really old but nothing so exciting.Maybe I can`t support what happen to all orthodox churches in Romania where somebody shell religious items inside the church.(to buy a candle it`s inacceptable for all us the orthodox, if you want to give something is up to you)

This church is really nice, it has its own special charm I liked. The district around it (an acient village outside the original city of Brasov) is well worth a visit. Only a 20 min walk outside of the center of Brasov

One of the main points, located in Unirii Square, it's more of an religious ensemble, with the church and the school, located on a small hill. It is a very unique church, the vibe inside really touched me

This is an impressively decorated church all the more attractive for the fact it is clearly a well-used community church. An interesting and well-kept graveyard surrounds it.

This church is a very active community, serving a poor population mostly. It is worth a short visit, if only because the First Roumenian school is adjacent.

It looks like something out of a fairy tale with its towers and turrets. Worth a side trip from the town centre.
