The first romanian scool lasts from year 1495 and was established near the St. Nicolae church. An old teacher takes care of the museum and explain with great passion all about the history of the place. Interesting experience.

Every Romanian or foreign traveler must know the Romanian part of the city, its past and links with the Romanian fight for an education. The guide is a very dedicated historian and author. Meet priet Vasile Olteanu, a living treasure of the town!

Unfortunately the museum was closed in the middle of the week and between the opening hours. We asked somebody where is the man that stands at the reception and his response was " He's busy and he opens the museum just for big groups who made an appointment before". Big dissapointment, regarding that I was thrilled about this museum in... More

Tucked to the side of St Nicholas Cathedral, this school that opened in 1292 is a treasure for everyone. From the original desks to the ancient school books and bibles, from old costumes to copies of some of the oldest maps. Try to be there when the curator, Professor Vasile Oltean is there - he is a fountain of knowledge... More
