Brasov City: Black Church in Brasov

Brasov City: Black Church in Brasov

Black Church is the most powerful symbol of Brasov, bearing its name after a great fire in 1689. Located in the historical centre, built during 1383-1477, this massive construction is the largest Gothic style church located to the Eastern part of Vienna. The superlatives do not stop here: the largest organ, the largest bell (more than 6 tones weight) and the most valuable collection of oriental carpets, exceptional value parts from the 7th – 8th centuries. The church exposes a great collection of gravestones of the bishops, priests and famous people who were buried here.
