The Black Church (Biserica Neagra) was built in Gothic style in 1477 on a spot of and even older church.
In 1689 the church was almost burned down by the Austrian Army. The name "Black Church" was derived from the blackened ruin.
The church is home to one of the biggest collection of Oriental carpets from the 17th and 18th century. The carpets were gifts of local merchants.
In one of the columns inside the church you can still see bullet holes from the 1989 Romanian revolution.
The entrance fee to the church is 4 RON (2007) and the church closes at 17:00 h in summer and at 15:30 h in winter.
The Black Church dominates Brasov's old town. It is located just adjacent to the Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului).
