Saint Nicholas' Church dominates the Schei District. First built in wood in 1392 (627 years ago), replaced with a stone structure in 1495 (524 years ago) and considerably expanded in the 18th century, the church is a true architectural masterpiece. With a mix of Byzantine, baroque and gothic styles, it features a slender tower and four corner towers. Like other medieval churches, it is surrounded by protective walls with large wooden gates. The enclosure shelters a small old cemetery where several *prominent people of Romania are buried. The First Romanian School, now a museum (see museum details), the Library and the Archives of Saint Nicholas Church also are found on nearby grounds.
