BRASOV'S SCHEI DISTRICT HISTORY
The Schei District is renown for hosting the Romanian inhabitants of medieval Brasov. It has been nicely preserved. It’s famous for its rural aspect with narrow streets and small houses. The settlement is historically dated a long time before the medieval city of Brasov. It was named Catun and it hosted Romanian settlers that were defending the old citadel from the top of the Tampa mountain.
Schei continued to exist after the erection of Brasov’s fortified complex (1455). but the suburb remained outside of the city walls and its residents were guards that lived outside of the town.
Nowadays the Schei District hosts some highly important landmarks like the First Romanian School (first attested in 1495), the Sf. Nicolae Church (initial settlement in 1292), The Evangelic church (end of XVIIIth century) and the Lutheran church as well as the Sf. Treime church (1813).
