My son took us to this little church because the neighborhood it's located in was one of his favorite areas when he lived in Brasov a few years ago. We liked the pretty little square and the surrounding buildings as well. To reach the church, you walk through a covered gate and up a little hill. A wall surrounds the... More

The church is just next to the oldest medieval school and printing press. You can visit all three sights in a short time.

A pretty litle church, steep steeples give it a distinctive look. Good internally with well painted ceilings and walls.

It's around 10 minutes walk from the black church and its' worth it. There is also the first Romanian school right next to the church. Beautiful on the inside and keeping the old fresco (peeled off) on the outside

I recommend this church to those who want to see a symbol of traditional Orthodox Church surrounded by a beautiful garden with flowers and green. Also, the church harbors a museum and the first school that was founded in Romania.

One look at this church and you know it's old...really old. There are still pieces of fresco left all over. What really impressed me was that this is still a very operational local house of worship. This made us all feel slightly uncomfortable because we didn't to disturb and are unfamiliar with Orthodox traditions. The worshippers were really friendly and... More

We didn't have much time to visit this location since it was the last site to see on a tight schedule. However the place is absolutely amazing and the school is a must see.

as I mentioned in other reviews,this church is definitely the most beautiful Orthodox Church in Brasov and one of the most beautiful in Romania;at the same time it has a somewhat outstanding architecture and not perfectly fitting with the Romania style;it resembles more to a Catholic church but it is at the same time a mix of perfect harmony,uniquness and...

I loved the tower roof and entrance portico. Inside it is not so attractive. It is worth walking the few blocks off the main square.

Wonderful icons and ancient carved chair-benches. Only a limited space for visiting as half the chancel and high altar cordoned off. It seems to combine majesty with a folksy atmosphere! NO brochure in any language, let alone English! Tatty postcards not good enough. Nevertheless pictures, icons and carvings make a worthwhile visit.
