SECRET CATACOMBS & The Black Church | Brasov, Romania's Dark Side
What. We think might be the catacombs. So. George is going in. Hey. Guys thanks for tuning in to amy's crypt I'm currently, in Brasov, Romania and, I want to take you to two locations. That have very creepy tales and very, spooky, stories about them. This, structure was constructed back, in the 14th, century but. Was originally named, the Church of st. Mary, it wasn't until, 1689. When a great fire broke out in Brasov, destroying. Much of the city but fortunately, leaving, the church standing, this fire did however blacken. A lot of the exterior, of the church which, can still be seen in a lot of its areas today that. Is what caused the church do you gain a new name and it, is still known to this day as the black church. Although. That part of the black churches history, is very interesting. It is the local, legend, of the, death of a young boy connected, to the black church that is most interesting, to me there is a statue, of, a very young boy sitting, right on the roof of this church that, young boy seems, to be peering, over the edge of the roof towards. The floor which is a very great distance it's, a large drop it's not symmetrical, or fitting, to any of the other symbols, or architecture, on the church and no one actually knows why it is there though, there are three different theories as to why, this statue of the, young boy exists. So. The first Theory tells, of this, young boy as a priest's. Son and, is told that one day the, boy was, acting, quite naughty and received, a punishment from his father which was to be locked away in the black churches attic, for, a lengthy, amount of time unfortunately. At that time coincided. With the great fire of brasov and it is fought that the statue of the boy on the but church's roof is actually. That very boy trying, to escape his death from that great fire and the, flames that were engulfing, the black church. Now. The next, theory depicts, this little boy as a construction. Worker who was assisting, the black church to be built the, story goes that, his, boss asked, him to peer over the edge of the roof to check that the wall that they were constructing, was coming up straight apparently. As he did so he, lost his balance toppled. Over the edge and fell to his death now. His, boss felt so guilty, about, the boy's death and felt. That he was responsible for causing it he supposedly, had the statue erected, in, honor, of that young boy to remember, him the third and final theory. About this young boy is the, most sinister and it is believed that he may have actually been murdered. So similar to the last story this, boy was working, as a construction assistant. On the black, church now it is told that another worker, grew insanely, jealous of, this, young boy because, he was such a hard worker he was getting a lot of recognition for, his work so this man decided to murder the young boy he asked him to peer over the edge to check that the wall was coming up okay and pushed.
Him To his death now this man was over ridden, with grief so much they, actually confessed, to murdering the young boy and, when the rest of the construction workers found, out what had happened it, was them that decided. To have the statue of the boy erected. In his memory. So, just a circling, around the bunch edge and we found a really cool, little door I. Wonder. If I can see through the keyhole. So, what's cool is they're restoring. The. Church and actually, working on it, so. I can't get in there myself but you can kind of see on the fence what, it looks like and I. Kind. Of like that because it features heavily in one, of those theories as to, why. The statue, of this little boy on the church exists, so. The little boy is way up there, he's quite hard to make out but when. You spot him he is very distinctive, because there's. Nothing else on the church like it. So. The statue of the little boy is right. Above me and if there is any truth to any of these stories, and the. Positioning, of this statue means anything, a young, boy very well could have died on the ground behind. Me and. Funnily. Enough there's. A patch of grass right there. So. Interestingly a, lot of people, have claimed to, cite the apparition, of a young boy around, the black church and within the black church so. His spirit, may still linger on here, leading many to believe that there is some truth behind these legends. I'm, just leaving the black church now hoping to find the brass of catacombs, which, actually rumored to maybe be linked to, underneath, this church which is interesting so. Hopefully we can track those down. Guys. I'm just walking down Brussels, alley behind the walls are, we walking along a fortified. Medieval structure. In the search of brasov secretive. Catacombs. I. Also. Just found the, main. Entrance, that people spoke about accessing, this place online and. It is sealed with an iron door you. Can, find up crouch. Down and, looking to get a glimpse it. Sucks I can't take you in there and I can't really show you that far. And. I really really want to go in. You. Can't see much or not mine either. So, we might keep maybe. Looking around so we can find another, entry, otherwise. I'll tell you a bit about its creepy stories anyway. All, right so other than walking for, a spiderweb I found another entry, to the catacombs. But. This one is even more, still doll. So you haven't had any luck with. The two entrances that we did find, I'm surprised that we even found those so. I'm going to keep walking and see if we can find another point of access. This. Is safe. My, friend just. Watch out cause it's not. Ya. Wanna. Look, down out there, click, on this, right. All, right since these entrances, are all sealed I'm gonna walk, through this. Little, hiking trail in this first, sort, of thing that surrounds, it those, catacombs. Apparently. Extend, pretty far so. Hopefully. We can find another access, point. So, go this way. We. Found a medieval, fortified, tower up on this hill and there's, an awesome view of the black church just, down here so. You can, kind of see if the catacombs, are in this area that is potentially, how far they stretch and, they've, got the cool brass off Hollywood, sliding ripoff up there too. We, haven't been able to find, another. We. Haven't been able to find, another. Entrance yet we're gonna keep walking around looking around but, look. Sure that we're gonna get in, so. We, just started walking and then all of a sudden we were really high, I don't know when this happened but if you look down here you can see this massive drop. And. I think. We're. Gonna keep following, this path down. So. That we stay alive, we're, probably too high up now for. How. To claim entries. I assume, they're all further, down on. The flat ground so we're gonna head down that way. So. Jared, convinced me to walk down this. Little, trail here. Just. Off the beaten track and, and. Now we're kind of stuck we, don't know which way to go. Wherever. We try to go back up which I don't know if I can cause it's so steep or. We go left or we go right or we just go down just further, steep and possibly fall in the creek. No, idea if there is another entry to the catacombs or if we'll find it but. Here, we are lost. In this stupid. Trail, so. He's sending Jared down this path to, investigate. Something that he just spotted, I don't. Think. It's anything but he seems to think it is or. I could go back that way. Or. Maybe forward. This way. We'll follow him down. I'm. Just gonna wait so, Jared just call me down this hill because he thinks he found an entry. It. Kind of looks like one but it. Doesn't look like something that we can. Go down it looks sealed, about have a look. Can. You stomp, on that it looks like it's just been buried, in with dirt. Yeah. I think it's just been buried in. That. Sucks. But. Maybe we keep walking along, I, actually.
Can't. Believe it Jarrod found. An entrance, to, what, we think might be the catacombs, it is a really. Small narrow hole in the. Base of this. Cliff. Here. It's, semi. Sealed off. By. A wooden I, don't. Know what door. Probably. Fit down there I don't know what, is beyond despair though I'm, not even sure that that would, be an entrance to the catacombs. Yeah. Should we go in. Before. We go any further I wanted to give you a bit of background info, on the, rest of catacombs, and why I am so interested in them basically, what these are is an underground, tunnel system beneath, for the floors of brasov that connect a lot of the towers, and military, strongholds there, is one rumor about them that states German. Prisoners, of war were placed in them during, World War two the, entrances, were sealed and they were encased. Down, there to die now whilst a lot of the tunnel system hasn't been discovered, or mapped out they, are thought to be quite extensive, and even rumored to stretch as far as, the black church I've seen some images of, them online and they look very creepy, and very cool and you'd think if there was a bunch of people in tombs down there to die there. Might even be a bit of paranormal, activity, that occurs down there and there's certainly, has, being mists, and orbs, captured, in photographs. Jarrod's. Take him onto the team in his white shirt and. Crawled. In the hole, what. Do you see. What. Do you see. Is. It. Blocked off. There's. Another hole you have to get through the very fire I don't think we can do it, so. Joe just going in. See. Here take the camera and see what's in there. There's. Lots of mosquitoes, in here. Looks. Like there's a ladder or steps of some kind. It's. Definitely a room. In there. It. Definitely looks too. That's. Too small to get in like my foot, you. Know like, it's. A pretty simple crow so don't think we're gonna be able to get in. The. Camera yeah. It's. Hard. Yeah. I don't think we're gonna be able to get in. Looks. Like a ladder, that's. Been broken damaged, and caved in. That. So there's a, wall. Of some kind yeah, I think it's me to tie it. To. It. Show. Up what do we do I don't think we should go in it I don't even know if it's the catacombs, and I. Just. Showed on the on, the camera the. Hole. That you have to get to you're unsure in that hole it's, smaller than my foot and I've only got a small foot okay. I don't. Think we should impress, a monavie the catacombs this could just be a whole, lot about to collapse, so. It's really cool that we actually found the entrance we are. Not gonna go any further and try and get inside the, hole that, is there is very tight partially, caved in and the ladder that descends, has been all broken up we're gonna keep walking along, this Creek and see if we can locate another. Entryway. That maybe we can get in but. That one, seemed. Just a little bit too, unsafe. So. We have just spotted another, entry, it. Is, blocked. Off but we're gonna go have a look anyway it looks like it's got a great that we can maybe you shown a little torch through. But. Psycho. Wow. It's freezing cold can, you feel that oh yeah. I can it is. That's. Pretty cool can you see much in there good, night Monsieur number. Looks, like a lot of us caved in yeah. Why, is that wind coming out of it as I know you guys can't feel, it but there's cold. Maybe. I even have frost breath there's cold winds just blowing out of this hole, hold your hair up and say food poisoning, well. You can see it I'm on these twigs. See. Ya again soup. It's. A lot of mosquitos in there so again this. Entry is sealed off when we peer inside I don't know that you can see it that well in camera but, it looks like a lot of it has been caved. In and I. Think. So that night it. Looks like a lot of it has been caved in and it's. Not really a tunnel system that. Is interconnected, and, accessible, we're, gonna keep walking and, see if we find, any. Other cool chambers like that that looks amazing. And. Right, behind me is another entry, that is sealed. This, place is stupid cute, and really cool island check out his bridges. And if streams carved, a pathway for it so fruit. Rock. So. We're back of the original, entrance, that is blocked off and unfortunately. We're not going to be going inside brussels catacombs, today I'm, really disappointed and. I'm sure you are too and I apologize, my.
