This is truly a gem in Brasov old town! The schoolbuilding - itself nicely restored- sits on the grounds of the St, Nicolas church and is maintained and well cared for by its priests. There is a wonderful old school room with its customary gadgets, but upstairs is a truly astounding collection of ancient, some very ancient books and not just bibles. There is an old printing press, which is demonstrated upon request, and the priests will sell you their books describing the collection in detail with illustrations (unfortunately only in Roumenian). This is a treasure of immense cultural value which UNESCO should take into protection - thefts have taken place already. The priest we talked to said he has a house with twelve rooms full of such ancient books, which were given to him in protection against the communist regime. He needs a team of assistants who read old chruch slavonic and cyrliic!!!!
