  • The school is one of the premises of a small local museum. Certainly has historical significance. The situation is in the old style. I don't know how many there original from the first school, but still interesting. Desks, writing instruments-all old, looks very natural. Baby sit for such a school was 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.
