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.

  • A small building that took us around his conservative who is above all a passionate scholar. Invaluable ancient works which would place in a trunk of a great Museum in these small windows confidential. Incunabula, sheet music with notation of music in Babylonian (without scope) and Slavonic text. It doesn't have to be a lot of person to have the ability to read and even less to sing. The first Bible in Romanian. For the intellectuals.

  • 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.
