  • The oldest school located in Brasov, Romania Schei district, a short walk from Unirii Square in the courtyard of the Church of St. Nicholas. To get there from Poarta Schei must walk for ten minutes (although there are several signs along the way and is therefore impossible to get lost). The school, which is now a small museum, was founded in the 14th century. The building that housed the old school is on two floors. When we showed up the caretaker, who was upstairs with a group of Italians, declined to open the door on the ground floor but then disappeared. I waited a bit, but in vain, to pay for your ticket and make an interesting guided tour praised by several reviewers. At the end we visited the ground floor alone. Entering on the left, there is still the real classroom with benches, it is not clear how the ancients. Close to the Chair there is even a vintage shape sorter.
