We visited the old school house and the church, greeted by the curator who is also a priest. Interesting and worth a visit

In the heart of the old medieval Brasov you can admire the begining of Romanian language teachings, a typography machine and a lovely old church, St. Nicholas.

The values of the Romanian spirituality have been created long time ago in the old district of Braşov called Scheii Braşovului. The oldest memories and remains remember of the getae-dacians village that existed two thousands years ago on the spot known today as "Salmon's Rocks" ("Pietrele lui Solomon").

Picturesque church near Brasov centre. From the times Romanians were forced to live outside city walls and had to create their own Ortododox community here at Schei district.

We loved the quiet and peace of this place. As if the clock had been turned back. Amazing how close the cemetary is to the neighbouring houses. Nice colorful murals at the cemetary entrance gate.

My son took us to this little church because the neighborhood it's located in was one of his favorite areas when he lived in Brasov a few years ago.
