  • It is not far away from the Old City Center of Brasov, very close to a very old Romanian Church so you can have the opportunity to visit 2 in one. The first old scool in Romania is also a great museum...  more »
  • This visit was not scheduled, but the guide said we had that view it was very interesting. Entering receives us a teacher scientist who wrote many book and tells us that nobody reads it. School is small and this man with a lot of grace not explains with much interest what happened and even sings us the anthem of their country in two versions ancient and modern which is more slow that tells us people are sleeping with that anthem. I found interesting

  • Probably one of the most representative Romanian education history museum. I recommend , Mr. Vasile Oltean, director of museum and guide ,a great man of culture
  • This has been the first school opened in Rumania ( 1495 ). Very interesting to see. Ottoman Empire, Habsburg Empire and Rumanian landlords has been fighting for this land for centuries.
  • A must-see sight in Brasov. Also hosts a geocache hotel.
  • A very important touristic objective. Don't miss it!!!
  • It's a nice place to visit, but the church was always close.
