The History of the Black Church
Whoever visits Brașov knows that the Black Church is the city’s symbol. A simple look at the outstanding building makes one’s heart and brain understand this fact. Its overwhelming image remains engraved into one’s soul forever.
The ground of our faith is the Holy Bible in the understanding of the protestant tradition established in the 16th century by the Lutheran Reformation. It was introduced and spread in Transylvania by Johannes Honterus.
Let Inspiration Guide You
We created INSPIRATIO with the goal to preserve and revive the heritage of the Black Church.
We noticed that each wish of a person has its own time, and the intersections of these wishes are miraculous synchronicities. Or, in some cases, they are the result of the lucky coincidence of people being at the same time in the same wonderful place: at the Black Church and its aura in the heart of Brașov.
History & Music
Blessed are those being carried away by the tales of the ancient walls, frescoes, and arches, by the lives that were lived before ours, with their own unique meanings. The spirit of a place is fraught with history, a spirit which inspires and urges us to reflect and discover. And if all this is accompanied by music, the gate onto which happiness enters our lives is conjured.
When people are important to you, close and dear, you undertake an entire adventure to find a gift that will make them happy, that will suit them and remind them of the special spiritual or professional connection between you. Intending to offer the best answers to these questions, we have created our shop of unique gifts inspiring both the creator and the receiver.
A cup of coffee is always surrounded by thoughts, plans and emotions. Somehow paradoxically, a cup of coffee can reflect the person that is drinking it at a given moment through the calmness and inspiration that it offers him or her, through the sense of well-being that it induces, which breeds daydreams and creativity, proving that coffee itself is an area of self-communion.

Discover the Black Church – the emblem of Brașov
Last summer I spent a day in the beautiful city of Brasov, in the surrounding of its symbol: the Black Church. Being a place of worship and a sight known by tourists from all over the world, this church can also be considered the very emblem of Romania. It is a building offering a very great amount of historical facts and legends. It is a place you should not pass by when strolling about the ancient centre of Brasov.

Whenever I stop in Brasov, the Black Church is an unavoidable point of reference for me. Even if I do not belong to the citizens of Brasov, I am very proud of this building. Each time I discover something new, watching new details in the light of its history and of its legends. The Black Church and the Curtea Johannes Honterus with their old and new stories are places where I never get bored. There I feel enthusiastic and inspired – each time anew.
Stelian Buzoianu, Brăila
I am deeply moved, since the very moment I stepped into the Black Church I heard the sound of the organ.The architecture is outstanding as well! I have admired the statues and other works of stonemasonery, but mostly the painting showing how the Reformation Booklet is read out to the City Council. I visited the Black Church for the second time and again I am deeply touched!
Andreea, Bârlad (Vaslui county)
My impression about the church: the story about the church was extremely interesting, the rich history. I am surprised the church survived all the catastrophes and wars, and … yeah, the ottoman rugs, it’s amazing, they look so bright and fresh, it’s amazing!
