Photographer's Note

In the 19th century, Orthodox Romanians from Braşov had no church because the only Orthodox church in the city belonged to the Greeks so resident Bartolomeu Baiulescu got permission to build the Groaveri chapel in Piata Sfatului. Like many other Orthodox churches in the center of Braşov, this one is hidden inside a passageway with no façade on the piata. The architecture of the church is more reminiscent of the Baroque style than the typical tri-conical plan of regular Orthodox churches.
