Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Central Romania / Brasov County / Brasov / Black Church (Biserica Neagra)
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.

Black Church (Biserica Neagra) reviews
A place full of history, which generates a special experience. On hot days you benefit from the cold here. Now, on Saturday evening, between 6pm and 7pm, the organ concert season opened. For... more »
The Black Church is a must see în Brașov. It is pretty big, the second biggest în Romania, and it has beautiful design inside. Its history is also interesting. Definitly worth visiting. more »
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.
