Architectural Building History Museum
At Prima Școală Românească, 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.
