panoramic image for:Map of Braşov: Sf. Adormire Orthodox Church

Like all Orthodox churches in the centre of Brasov this church is behind the houses in a yard not in the street. After the Orthodox lost the Baritiu street church to the Greeks there was only one solution left: Deacon Bartholomeu Baiulescu won the right to build the church in the centre. A chapel was built in Groaveri residential area and they started to collect money for the construction of the church. By 1894 they raise sufficient money so they started to build the church with the money donated by the 114 orthodox families living in centre of the town. In two years the Sf. Adormire church, built on the model of the Viennese Greek Church, was completed. The parish is in the street and a passageway leads to the church. The church is well adorned, the altar screen was made by the school in Brasov and the frescos were painted by an artist named Damian. The Byzantine style tower of the parish collapsed in the 1940 earthquake. It was rebuilt in 1972.
