Picturesque church near Brasov centre. From the times Romanians were forced to live outside city walls and had to create their own Ortododox community here at Schei district. A religious place still in function. Search for the remnants of old frescoes at the exterior walls and the portraits of the last Romanian kings at the interior, just after the entrance.... More

We loved the quiet and peace of this place. As if the clock had been turned back. Amazing how close the cemetary is to the neighbouring houses. Nice colorful murals at the cemetary entrance gate.

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
