“the best opportunity to see it is in the winter holidays, at concerts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

The Black Church is really interesting but far more better to stay for a wile and listen to some carols and admire the inside with no hurry. the music and the concerts make it even more enjoyable, as the church comes to life! the building itself is very old, with hundreds of years of history behind but extremely well preserved/rebuild. it's also the landmark of Brasov and i do suggest you to visit it!(especially during the winter)

“With an proper guide can be something unforgettable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

It is a nice building (both inside and outside) who hide a lot of things (places and facts) which can be found only with a professional / passionate guide because without it somebody will see only an old building where sometimes somebody play old music. Do yourself a favor and ask an complete tour (the church and the tower) and if it is possible and also take your time to listen an organ concerto and you will have an complete and unforgettable experience.

“Nice historical monument.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2014

This was a nice place to visit to learn more about the history behind it. The visit in itself is okay and you can read about who and how the church was built.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014

One of the oldest and largest Gothic churches in Eastern Europe. As about the little boy statute on the roof to hear the story about him..

“Beautiful Church”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Unfortunately we weren't able to enter the castle. It was closed for the day as Prince Charles was in the district and visiting the church.
