This place is full of very important and one of a kind books. It was definitely one of the highlights in Brasov. There is very little information in English, but we got a private tour of the place which was wonderful.

It is amazing to sit in the desks of people who changed the history of this nation. This place should be on the list of each tourist that comes to Brașov! I just hope they have an English tour...

It was unbelievable to find in such a small and humble place such an historical richness. I will not make a spoiler just go.

A must do. Do not be put off by "museum" . You sit in the original school room and a priest tells you the history. He is hilarious and really brings it alive. He even sang us a song! Also very very early bibles and...More
