A fusion of Romanesque Orthodox style, this ancient church dated back around the fifteenth century is one of the most beautiful in the city, the peculiarity is its spiers. It may be a short visit here being located a short distance from the historic center.

Built in a rather glaring Byzantine style,this church stands out from the subdued merchants houses of the surrounding square.Inside there are some rather impressive frescoes of Romanias last king and queen,covered by plaster to protect them from communist leaders and uncovered in 2004.

Beautiful, beautiful church. In the center of Brasov , don't miss a visit there. The area around the church is definitely worth a visit too.

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
