Dating back to the 18th century, the Holy Trinity Church consist of the the church "St. Treime "-Greceasca and the Cemetery of the church. The entrance welcomes you with grand sketches seen on the outside wall. Walk in to see the candle room and the church decorated with a myriad of colours, frescoes, metal art, paintings and the breath-taking altar that covers the entire height of the church! The frescoes were made by Gulimievici in 1859 while the icons painted on wood and canvas date back to the 17th- 18th century. The highlight of the church is the collection of books and objects donated by duke Grigore Brâncoveanu.

The adjoining crypt has a history of 200 years and completes the place and has graves of the Brâncoveanu family and a number of people of the Greek community along with archbishop Ugrovlahiei Dosoftei.

  • Greek Orthodox church of Holy Trinity since 1787 & cemetery of the past Greek commercial community. At that time, according to city laws, the orthodox community wasn't allowed to build a church inside the castle walls. After numerous attempts, in 1786, the city aldermen granted them to transform a few Saxon houses' backyard into a church, but without a tower or bell. The money was gathered by Greeks mainly the rich merchant Panagiotis Chatzinikos who contributed the high amount of 6,000 forints in the land purchase and Romanian orthodox believers as well as the Brâncoveanu family. For a year the services were held in Romanian and Greek, but in 1789 the Greeks wanted the church for themselves. The lawsuit lasted for 100 years and it was the Greeks who won. It was then that the church in the centre was built. Only in 1942 when the Greeks left did the Romanian Orthodox Church take over the Greek Orthodox church.  The frescoes in the interior were painted by Gulimievici in 1859. The icons dating from the XVII-XVIIIth century are painted on canvas and wood, the altar screen dates from 1855. The most valuable objects and books have been donated by duke Grigore Brâncoveanu. The Brâncoveanu family and many of the Greek community with the main church donor Panagiotis Chatzinikos lay in the church cemetary, archbishop Ugrovlahiei Dosoftei is also burried here. Ελληνορθοδοξος ναος Αγιας Τριαδας απο το 1787 και νεκροταφείο της περασμένης Ελληνικής εμπορικής κοινοτητας. Παρακατω απόσπασμα από κείμενο του κ. Δ. Κανελλοπούλου Τὴν 1η Ὀκτωβρίου 1678, μετὰ ἀπὸ αἴτημα τῶν ἐνδιαφερομένων Ἑλλήνων ἐμπόρων τῆς πόλεως, ἡ Δίαιτα τῆς Τρανσυλβανίας σὲ συνεδρίασή της, ἐνέκρινε τὴν ἵδρυση τῆς ἑλληνικῆς ἐμπορικῆς ἑταιρείας τοῦ Brasov. Μετὰ ἀπὸ ἕνα μήνα, ὁ τότε πρίγκιπας τῆς Τρανσυλβανίας, Apafi Mihály, ἐπικύρωσε τὴν παραπάνω ἀπόφαση. Ἑκατὸ χρόνια ἀργότερα, ὁ Παναγιώτης Χατζηνίκου ἀπὸ τὰ Γιάννενα, (αὐτὸς ποὺ υἱοθέτησε τὸν Ζώη Καπλάνη), ὁλοκλήρωσε τὴν ἀνοικοδόμηση μιᾶς παλιᾶς ἐκκλησιᾶς, γιὰ νὰ καλύψει τὶς ἀνάγκες τῶν ρωμιῶν ποὺ εἶχαν πληθύνει στὴν πόλη. Δώρισε στὴν κοινότητα ἕνα μεγάλο ποσὸ (6.000 φιορίνια) καὶ ἀγοράστηκε τὸ οἰκόπεδο. Ἡ ἐκκλησιὰ περατώθηκε τὸ 1787 καὶ ὀνομάστηκε «Ἐθνικὸς καὶ Ἑλληνικὸς ναὸς τῆς Ἁγίας Τριάδος». Λειτουργοῦσαν ἐκεῖ ἕλληνες ἱερεῖς, ποὺ ἔρχονταν κατόπιν προσκλήσεως τῆς ἑλληνικῆς κοινότητας, ἀπὸ τὸ Ἅγιον Ὅρος, καθὼς καὶ ἀπὸ ἄλλες μοναστικὲς κοινότητες. Ἡ Ἁγία Τριάδα τῶν Ἑλλήνων, ἔγινε ἀργότερα, στὰ μέσα τοῦ 19ου  αἰώνα, τὸ μῆλον τῆς ἔριδος μεταξὺ ἑλλήνων καὶ ρουμάνων ποὺ ἔφτασαν μέχρι τὰ αὐτοκρατορικὰ δικαστήρια τῆς Βιέννης, διεκδικώντας την, ἡ κάθε κοινότητα γιὰ δικό της λογαριασμό. Τὰ αὐτοκρατορικὰ δικαστήρια τῆς Βιέννης, δικαίωσαν τὴν ἑλληνικὴ κοινότητα. Στὸ πίσω μέρος τῆςἐκκλησιᾶς, ὅπου βρισκόταν τὸ παλιὸ ἑλληνικὸ νεκροταφεῖο, τοῦ ὁποίου ἡ «πλάτη», ἀκουμποῦσε τὰ μεσαιωνικὰ τείχη τῆς πόλης. Στὰ μπροστινὰ μνήματα, στ’ ἀριστερό μας χέρι πρῶτο-πρῶτο, τὸ ἀπέριττο μνῆμα τοῦ Παναγιώτη Χατζηνίκου ἀπὸ τὰ Γιάννινα. Ὁ Παναγιώτης Χατζηνίκου ἔφυγε μικρὸς ἀπὸ τὰ Γιάννενα, περιπλανήθηκε στὶς παραδουνάβιες ἡγεμονίες καὶ στὴ Ρωσία καὶ μὲ τὸν καιρό, ἔκανε μεγάλες ἐπιχειρήσεις γουναρικῶν. Ἔκανε μαγαζιὰ στὴν  Λειψία, στὴν Πετρούπολη, στὸ Κίεβο καὶ στὴν Ὀντέσσα. Κι ἀκόμη στὸ Βουκουρέστι. Φαμελιὰ δικιά του δὲν ἀπόκτησε, γι’ αὐτὸ υἱοθέτησε τὸν Ζώη Καπλάνη κι ὅταν ἦρθε ἡ ὥρα, μεγάλος πιά, τοῦ ἄφηκε τὶς ἐπιχειρήσεις του κι ἀποσύρθηκε στὸ Μπρασόβ, ὅπου διέθεσε ἀστρονομικὰ ποσὰ γιὰ τὴν ἐποχή, ὑπὲρ τῆς ἑλληνικῆς κοινότητας. Ἀγόρασε τὸ οἰκόπεδο καὶ ἔχτισε μὲ ἔξοδά του τὴν ἐκκλησιὰ τῆς Ἁγίας Τριάδας. Ἀκόμη ἀγόρασε κι ἕνα κτίριο στὴν ὁδὸ Ecaterinei, τὸ ὁποῖο τὸ μετέτρεψε σὲ ἑλληνικὸ σχολεῖο. Στὴ συνέχεια, βοήθησε νὰ χτιστεῖ νοσοκομεῖο γιὰ τοὺς ἕλληνες ποὺ ζοῦσαν σ’ αὐτὴν τὴν μακρινὴ γωνιὰ τῶν Βαλκανίων… Οἱ εὐεργεσίες του πολλές. Τώρα κοιμᾶται ξεχασμένος, στὸ ἀσφυκτικὰ μικρὸ κοιμητήρι τῆς Ἁγίας Τριάδας τοῦ Μπρασόβ… Στὸ πίσω μέρος τοῦ Κοιμητηρίου, στὸ σκεπαστό του μέρος, βρίσκονται οἱ κρύπτες τῶν μεγάλων ἑλληνικῶν οἰκογενειῶν τῆς πόλης: οἰκογένεια Σαφράνου, οἰκογένεια Κάλφοβιτς, οἰκογένεια Πώπ κλπ
