What a great piece, and what beautiful photographs! Thanks for sharing this information with all of us. Are they worth visiting? Absolutely! From these photos, it's hard to judge which is the "best", although the setting of the Fortified Church is hard to beat. Which do you like best, Andre Pur? I bet that this is a nice time of year to visit Romania.

My favourite ones are: Voronet Monastery for its beautiful blue painting and the Black Church because is near my living place . About the Easter Holiday yes it is a wonderful time in my country, almost because we cook a lot of great and tasty food specific for this time of the year. I will post another article later these days with our food traditions maybe you would like it

It's a great tour of a great city. That cathedral is fabulous and the color of the stone used in construction is perfect for a church. Thanks, Tom!

Gumbo was visiting the lovely Roman Catholic Church of St. Mary's in the Mountains, situated in Virginia City, Nevada. Over 150 years old, it is a lovely building and should be on your "to do" list when visiting the Reno area.

St Michael's is the oldest church in Charleston. The building and many of its interior features date to the mid-18th century.

Re: St. Michael's Church, Charleston

Beautiful stained glass window photos. Charleston is known as the Holy City because of the many churches of many faiths. An acquaintance of mine, Andy Brack is the author of the Charleston Currents web page that weekly reports political, educational, nature, and people issues for the city of Charleston. He also runs a mystery photo once a week and St. Michael's was once used in that contest.

We thought the Slea Head on the Dingle Peninsula was one of our five most beautiful places on the planet. We stopped at the Slea Head Cafe for a latte, a brownie, and the VIEW. It is GORGEOUS. We just sat in the sun and gazed at the Great Blaskett Islands.

Re: Gallarus Oratory, Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

Three more comments concerning Dingle: 1. Leaving the wharf/tourist area in Dingle and walking uphill into the central part of the town was very interesting in that we could interact with the locals and leave the hustle & bustle of the lower part of town. We stopped at a neat cafe for coffee called the Frog St. Cafe and we were the only non-locals in the place. 2. Between Dingle town and Slea Head is the Stone House Restaurant, which overlooks the bay and an ancient fort. The restaurant...

Hey , i'm so happy that you made this blog about Brasov, my city , happy that someone figure it about and posted the right answer about the puzzle. Everything said here is true, and to add more info about this destination, remind that The Black Church is the most photographied attraction in Romania, and right behind it with Dracula Bran Castle.

PHeymont - The character Dracula was based on the real life very interesting Vlad Tepes. 'Vlad the Impaler' And although he was very cruel ,is considered a patriot by many Romanians still. http://www.donlinke.com/drakula/vlad.htm

I'm not sure whether it is a case of shifting borders, or of seeking publicity, but Lugosi's official biography said Transylvania...but can you trust Hollywood? Hmmm....

Congratulations Worker Bee! Nice write up PHeymont! The Black Church holds some significant memories for me personally as does the whole city. In the aerial shot, if you look closely, you will also find some drab communist era apartment buildings. The time of Ceausescu and the Securitate was a time no one who lived in the country will forget. It was also Romania's baby boom when a lot people of people were born due to no birth control.
