No doubt this church is interesting and has a fascinating history. I particularly liked the unique carved or handpainted pews by each trade from say the carpenters, to the teachers all executed some 200 years plus ago. I didn't expect this and haven't seen it...More

One of the most important sites to visit while in Brasov. History and religion in one place, just by the city center...can't get better than that!

Since you are in Braşov, you must visit it. Nice place with hidden history behind the building. It is nice to read something about before visit it.
