This was an unexpected jewel in our visit. The history of the school and also the history of Romania is fascinating. The caretaker of the museum is a very well know author and historian and has wonderful stories to tell. There are also some of the oldest books in Romania housed here which were saved from the communist regime by... More

There's much more to visit here than the actual first Romanian school. There is a large collection of very important and interesting documents that you won't expect to find here (for example the first printed text in Slavonic), all because of a lot of research done by a very dedicated man: the priest who acts as the guide at the...

We had no idea what kind of treasure Brasov hides in this place... The custodian that is also a priest and acts as your guide is a man who loves and cherisses the history of our country. He talked to us about the beauty and symbolism of this place and we discovered the untold facts about our real Romanian history... More

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 not only for school related things but also for OLD BOOKS, some of the first books from Transilvania... More

The Priest / Curator is a wonderful character and very proud of his establishment. His knowledge is amazing but so is his sense of humour, a wonderful visit that is perhaps not on the general tourist map. Th e visitor is well rewarded if you take the time to look and ask questions. Some amazing very old books / manuscripts,... More

We were charged 10 lei per person to enter a room about 5 by 5 meters big. A Romanian lady with a child entered for free. The keeper took our money into his pocket and never gave us tickets. The museum is tiny and everything is in Romanian. The keeper tried to say some words in English but this was... More

An old school tranformed to museum. We found it closed and had to telephone to the guide. He soon arrived and our visit there ended as an excellent experience. He animated the place explaining aspects of Romanian cultural and scholar life at the past. Sublime collection of books and manuscripts. You can see here the Slavonians, Greeks and Russian influences,... More

Worth a visit. Also see the early printing press in the school building on the ground floor. Amazingly heavy walls keep th building cool even on a hot summer day.
