See what survives of the Gothic Black Church (Biserica Neagra), blackened by smoke and flames of the great 1689 fire. The interior features a huge organ with 4,000 pipes, a cast-iron tabernacle, some late Gothic murals, and an extensive collection of Anatolian carpets. Outside, the architecture draws interest, as the church is decorated with portals, arches, and many sculptures. The ruined bust of John the Baptist in the choir section is the oldest surviving sculpture in the church. Look for the city's coat of arms beneath the statue of Mary and Jesus.

  • The Black Church gets its name from its walls that were blackened in a fire. It is well worth a visit.

  • Very beautiful. I didn't go inside, but the architecture outside is magnificent. The dark color of the walls is not the original color, but it's a color aquired because the pollution. As everything in Romania (when i was there) it's under repairs, but you can have a great view of this beautiful building. If you have time there's a musem, and inside the church there is a huge pipe organ and Transylvanian tapestries. You shouldn't miss this. I will have to come back:)
  • If you visit Brasov and ommit the Black Kirch - you 'll miss very much. You' ll miss great a lot. Gorgeous, as the city itself, impressive and breathtaking outside and inside. A real masterpiece. Great much can be told about It's history. I was impressed my It's sizes. Enormous. Outside and inside. I was walking around it several times and spent an hour or more inside. Enjoying each corner. I won't tell much, because there are moments and impressions, one has to experience oneself.
