  • Located deep within the heart of the Transylvanian city of Brașov, St. Nicholas Church (known officially as “Biserica Sfântul Nicolae”) is one of the oldest churches of Romania. Established in 1292 and located in Brasov’s historic district of Şchei, the church was rebuilt using stone by the locals under the guidance of the Voivode of Wallachia, Vlad Călugărul. Further help arrived from the later Voivode Neagoe Basarab in 1512. What’s interesting to know about it is that it used to adhere to Gothic standards but its redesigns swayed it towards a more Baroque look. Notable graves in its local “St. Nicholas Cemetery” include those of Nicolae Titulescu, Ioan Meşotă, Aurel Popovici, and Vasile Saftu.
