Not only is it the largest gothic house of worship from Southeastern Europe, but it is not every day that you get to see a building that miraculously survived a devastating fire, like the one in 1689. Its walls had blackened from the fire, which is how it became known as the Black Church.
With construction finalized in 1477, over 540 years ago, the parish church of the Lutheran Evangelic community has always been one of the most visited tourist attractions in Romania, measuring 89 meters in length and 38 meters in width, which means in can host up to 5000 people.
