  • Been to Brasov many times and never knew of this hidden treasure. A beautiful church next to the oldest school in the country, the priest talks with passion about the old books, documents, book printi...  more »
  • It is touching to think of the deacon Coresi who printed books through this press, 6 to 20 students who have studied in these pews, to the history of the Romania that is so well evoked by the exposed here portraits and the explanations of our guide. I'm guessing that the guide knows how to adapt his speech to visitors. We bought a sheet on which are represented the voivodes, princes and Kings of the principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia, then of the Romania. Very informative. Shame that the visit was a little quick. I could have stayed longer to look at each picture and manuscript in detail and assimilate the information received.

  • It's a place that you should definitely visit especially as a Romanian. There is a priest there that presents in a very interesting way some of Romania's scholar history. I don't know if there are English guidance but you can buy a small book sharing some details about the museum. The museum houses some of the oldest books written in Romania. There is an old printing press used hundred of years ago.
  • Try not to miss the stories told by the professor. Delightful. A real treat. He is so knowledgeable and charismatic.
  • Not very big, but the old man who runs the place is a very good person and there are a lot of old books about romanian history
  • The place is interesting not only because of its old books and the first Romanian printing machine , but rather because of the priest who will introduce you to one of the deepest lesson of Romanian language origins. The locations of the museum is also nice , the church is a wonderful piece of architecture . Definitely among the top ten places to visit in Brasov
  • I really recommend this place for people that are interested in history and the guide Prof. Oltean has a lot of stories and he is a great guide. I felt it was really worth it and I'm sorry I haven't discovered this place earlier.
