4.5
#2 of 8 in Museums in Brasov County
Architectural Building History Museum
At Prima Scoala Romaneasca, sit behind the desks at which Romania's notable people learned to write their first letters. The school was built on the grounds of the 16th-century church of St. Nicholas and remained in use until 1941. Find out more about the beginnings of typography in Brasov in the Coresi room. The library stores 6,000 schoolbooks. At the museum next door, see the oldest Bible printed on goat skin, the oldest letter in the Romanian language written in the Latin alphabet, and the first Romanian printing press. Ask the school guide to demonstrate how the printing press operates.

Where to stay in Brasov

As one of the largest and most visited cities in Romania, Brasov offers a full range of accommodations, from guesthouses and budget lodging, to mid-range and premium hotels. Stay in the historical city center, close to the famous Black Church, to fully enjoy what the city has to offer and to be near to the sights. It's best to book your stay in advance. If you find yourself in need of immediate lodging, find a reputable information center and inquire--avoid solicitors that may approach you in the train station regarding accommodations. Be sure to inquire whether or not your hotel provides hot water, as this is not always a given here.
