About the venue:


The Black Church is one of the iconic places of Brașov. The name was given after a big fire that ravaged the city in 1689 and turned the church into ruins. Initially consecrated to the Holy Virgin, the Black Church was officially recognized under this name as of the XIXth century, after the Reform and the fire. The Black Church is the tallest church east of Vienna. Its Bucholz organ is the largest mechanical organ in Romania. Its collection of Turkish carpets is the second largest in Europe, after the Topkapi Museum’s collection in Istanbul.
