Die Schwarze Kirche (ro. Biserica Neagră) in Brașov (deutsch Kronstadt), ist der bedeutendste gotische Kirchenbau Siebenbürgens und Südosteuropas.
Die Kirche stellt mit dem Alten Rathaus im Altstadtzentrum das wichtigste historische Bauwerk der Stadt dar. Ihren Namen trägt die ehemals der Heiligen Jungfrau Maria geweihte hochgotische Hallenkirche wegen eines Stadtbrandes im Jahr 1689, der von der Kirche nur noch die geschwärzten Mauern stehen ließ. Sie ist seit der Reformation der Kronstädter Siebenbürger Sachsen durch Johannes Honterus eine evangelische Kirche.
Biserica Neagră or Black Church (German: Schwarze Kirche; Romanian: Biserica Neagră; Hungarian: Fekete templom) is a cathedral in Brașov, a city in south-eastern Transylvania, Romania. It was built by the German community of the city and stands as the main Gothic style monument in the country, as well as being the largest and one of the most important Lutheran (Evangelical Church of Augustan Confession in Romania) places of worship in the region.

Good morning Wolfgang,
Fine view upwards on the tower, and it's amazing clock. The paintings on the clock-frame are with religious figures probably known people to the time painted.
Nice clear view upon, well collected.

A classic architectural beauty of the church's tower filled by the eye catching design aided by the vintage time piece which certainly does makes this stonework stand out really well. It's competently composed in great clarity, low viewpoint, colours and contrast Your observation in making this shot is applauded, Well done, Congrats.

Yes I also have read about that story of the Black Church. Anyway I see it is not so black and mostly grey here ))
I have plans to visit Romania very soon, and I hope to visit Brasov too.
