We walked along the city streets making our way to the Black Church, which was closed. Brasov's most important landmark, the Black Church, the largest Gothic church between Vienna and Istanbul, towers over Piata Sfatului and the old town. Originally dedicated to the Virgin Marry, the church was Roman-Catholic for more than a century and a half and later with the reformation sweeping across Europe it became a Lutheran one.
We decided to head back to the hotel and have a nice dinner. After dinner we walked around Poiana Brasov and came across a dog that was limping. She must have had the injury for quite awhile. She followed us all throughout the town. At one point, she went up to some horses and started barking at them, showing to us that she was a good protector. The horses just ignored her. As we headed back to the hotel, we realized she was leading us there. Even when we had to make a sharp right turn, she led and took us right to the gate of the hotel. It was as if she knew exactly where we were staying.
We told the receptionist about the dog out front and instead of her running out to scare it away, she brought some food and water for her. We tossed some food to her too from our 2nd level balcony. She slept on the front porch of the hotel all night. It just added another great element to being in these mountains.
