  • Plenty to see and enjoy on one of the most heavily fortified churches in Transylvania. Download their free app, which is just before you go through the "tunnel", and you will have a much better experience. You can either read or listen and watch videos about the church. Do try and make it up to the top and walk the "Watch Road", fascinating. For lei15 You can spend a good couple of hours walking around. Recommended.
  • I have been all over Romania and this was my favorite treasure. It remains relatively the same and you can explore the nooks and crannies. Go on a low tourist day if possible. Such a unique experience!!!
  • Very well preserved fortified church, hundreds of meters walking up and down on stairs through the long halls. When you visit Transylvania a must to see. Missing still information or a guide to understand more related to history of the place.
  • Great collection of old (19th century) tools, great restoration all over. Awesome organ in the church.
  • Absolutely love it. Probably one of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen. A hidden gem!! It’s a must if you are around Brasov!!
