Still one of Romania’s major Lutheran churches, the theatrically Gothic Biserica Neagra or ‘Black Church’ Cathedral is a particularly good example of this style. Originally built by the local German community as Roman Catholic ‘Church of Saint Mary’ in the late 14th Century the single column altar supports the entire building with the help of several octagonal pillars.
