Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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 is an amazing historical landmark. This building has survived the tests of time and if I'm correct the real Vlad Dracula Tepes tried to burn it down. Sadly the new interior has turned it into a pretty standard Protestant church. 10/10 on the outside 6/10 on the inside.
  • Amazing building with hundreds of years of history. Stepping in the Black Church is like stepping back in time. You can still see the signs of the fire that gave the church its famous name. It's a must see if you find yourself in Brașov.
