The guide is excellent, the place is interesting and helps us to see a little how was the life in that time and what the education meant.

Very well done. The school guide explained the beginnings of the school and demonstrated the printing press. The red stamps/markings on the pages could have been demonstrated and that would really have been impressive.

Well worth a visit. The speaker is entertaining and informative and gives an insight on learning in days gone by and a eastern European country

The first Romanian School is in lovely Unirii square, a bit outside of Brasov center, in the romanian district. It doesn`t see many toursits, and it should. There you can get a feel of what is was like to be romanian back when austrians ruled the city.

But it is possible that an earlier school was in the Șchei neighborhood.

Excellent. Took my group with an English speaking local guide. The priest is a very well educated guy. He has four or five PhDs. He is the curator of the place. When it became a museum during communist times one of the first visitors was ceucescu who gave money to it.

Corona is the old name for the town of Brașov, which is the latin name for Corwn..well, the First Romanian School is really a jewel in Brașov!

What I liked most about the first Romanian school in Brasov was not the museum itself, but the guide, which was a priest, who explained us a lot of things about Romanian history. That man was amazing. It's the best place to go if you want to learn more about history in Brasov..

No matter if you're 3 or 90 it's a great place to visit and get acquainted or remember some bits of our educational system's roots.
