Preserving Heritage


Even today, much conservation work is necessary. Ample restorations of the historical roofing of the church and of the statues encased in its buttresses are currently taking place. The community has also been tirelessly working on an ecofriendly and efficient solution of the heating system.
After the majority of the Saxons had left the country, the interior of the Black Church became a haven for abandoned objects of Saxon heritage. Thus, four  valuable organs from former Protestant churches in ancient Saxon villages were taken to Brașov. They were restored and are now in use during religious ceremonies and concerts. Similarly, the Brașov community is taking care of Ottoman rugs from Protestant communities that no longer can afford their maintenance, along with its own collection.
