First Romanian School Museum

  Piata Unirii 2-3      (+4) 0722 43 51 34     more than a year ago
This has been a centre for Romanian teaching and book printing for centuries. The small museum houses countless Romanian ‘firsts’: the oldest Romanian bible (printed on goats’ skin), the oldest letter written in Romanian using the Latin alphabet (previously, Romanian was written with Cyrillic letters), a page from an 11th century schoolbook and much more. The printing press itself printed only 39 books, taking 20 workers and eight translators months to finish just one book. No wonder a book was worth 12 oxen in those days. Also here is the tiny Museum of the Junii (Muzeul Junilor), showing the seven different traditional costumes the Schei men wore; Schei women had only one.



Open 09:00-17:00.
