395 reviews
Escape the urban bustle of Bucharest for the day to discover the legends and treasures of Transylvania. Wander through the Gothic chambers and turrets of Bran Castle, nicknamed ‘Dracula’s Castle’ thanks to its spooky atmosphere and ties to Vlad the Impaler, and then feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy tale on a tour of splendid Peles Castle, the former royal residence of Romanian kings. Finally, explore one of Transylvania’s most well-preserved medieval villages on a walking tour of Brasov.

The Black Church (which isn’t black) is easy to find by the main square in the Old City. Despite the (closed) ticket office in the entrance, you can get tickets; go to the shop across from it by the coffee shop. The shop has lovely arts and crafts, so factor in some time to browse! The church itself, from the 1300’s, isn’t particularly impressive compared to others in Europe, but it does have many interesting painted wooden panels. Look up! The balcony, which is not accessible to visitors, hosts gigantic pipe organs the largest above the entryway, so you may notice it as prepare to leave. I’m not sure I’d recommend making this a destination, but if you visit when there is a concert there, it could be impressive.

A must visit if in Brașov! You can visit also inside the church. There are no pictures allowed inside. The price might be a bit overwhelming.

Well first of all it is a church and there is an entrance fee which is not cheap 12 RON. Somehow disappointing... The church itself is in good condition and is currently being repaired on the outside.

When I saw it I was wandering its size. This church is really so large and all people near it look like ants. I like the architecture of the Black Church. And it's cool that citizens save it to nowadays.

Visited in August during Covid restrictions and was pleased to see all precautions were taken. It’s cheap to get in and not as ornate as some of the Orthodox churches but some interesting paintings on the pews and ancient carpets on display. The staff we helpful and knowledgeable.
