Had delightful visit to this first school built in 1495 and given a lively "lesson" from the current priest who is the caretaker. Amazing to see the original school books, printing press, abacus and work boards.

There was only had one guide speaking Romanian when we visited. That did not help us much, we could not understand anything. We walked thru the rooms and we were done in 10 minutes. I would not recommend it if you do not speak Romanian.

... the guide was not able to told us in english about all these stuff. It was a bit frustrating, because we were really interested. But it was even quite nice just to have a look around the rooms and all the stuff inside.

Especially if you are a Romanian, this school is a must-see. It's not expensive and it's in a nice part of town where there are other attractions too.It's a beautiful piece of history.
