During our free walking tour we visited many attractions/sites. This one in particular is 10min from the council square, if we weren't on the tour we probably would not have visited the historic district of Schei, the old Romanian settlement. This is a beautiful church a well worth a visit.

The church is fairy-tale pretty, but the first Romanian school next door is even more interesting. It has many, many, very old books, being curated and translated by a small number of staff, and an original printing press.

It's one of the main Orthodox churches in Brașov and it's worth visiting only if you also visit the first Romanian school. Otherwise not much to see, but still a beautiful, historic place.

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.

Small but interesting church next to the first Romanian school, which is also worth a visit and so little entrance fee involved.

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").
