Webcam Biserica Neagră Brașov

Brașov, situated in the center of Romania, in the Bârsa Depression, at the foot of the Tâmpa Massif and the extensions of the Postăvaru Massif, is a city that emanates both history and vitality. Archaeological excavations in the area of the municipality have revealed traces of habitation from the Stone Age and the Dacian period. From the 14th to the 18th centuries, Brașov became an important commercial and craft center. In 1364, it obtained the right to organize annual and weekly fairs and concluded a trade agreement with Vlaicu Vodă, the ruler of Wallachia, which was successively renewed by other rulers. Thus, Brașov became one of the most important trading partners of Wallachia, and crafts and industry developed to meet the market demand south of the Carpathian Mountains.

Black Church

The Black Church is one of the most representative Gothic constructions in our country, its construction being carried out in the 14th-15th centuries. It is considered the largest church in Romania, as well as the largest Gothic-style place of worship in southeastern Europe, receiving, at the time of its inauguration, the title of “The largest church between Vienna and Constantinople”, that is, from St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna to Hagia Sophia in present-day Istanbul. The building measures 89 meters in length and 38 meters in width, its considerable dimensions allowing for the participation of about 5,000 people in services. The Black Church is one of the symbols of the city of Brașov, it is the seat of the parish of the Evangelical Church A.C. in Romania and holds several remarkable records: here is the Buchholz Organ, built in the early Romantic period, the largest mechanical organ in Romania, whose exceptional sound attracts prestigious organists from both the country and abroad every year; here is also the second-largest collection of oriental carpets in Europe, dating back to the 15th-16th centuries, and the church tower houses the largest mobile bell in Romania, weighing about 6,000 kg.
