The exterior paintings give you a glimpse of what you could expect inside and certainly it does deliver on. A glorious church jam packed with stunning frescoes, beautiful colours and in start contrast to the more famous black church which although nice was very different.

This historic church is located west of the old town. The outside is more impressive than the inside, but worth a look on your downtown wanderings. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

We were lucky to have a local guide who took us into this lovely church and the neighbouring First School, printing press and upstairs exhibition of early books. The demonstration of the early printing press was inspiring- what treasures a book would have been when...More

Another very interesting historical church, and a part of the sites and history of Brasov. The history behind the churches of Romania has to be looked at, individually, to really appreciate everything.

It was very reasonable, around 1 euro per person. Its worth a visit and the curator/priest is a really friendly character
