"Samuel von Brukenthal” National High School
The building at no. 5 from Huet Square is a public building erected in 1786 without being altered until the present day. The construction was performed after the demolition of a building of the 14th century, which served as an elementary school for the town in 1380. The new location complied with the needs of the secondary and high school education legislated by the imperial government.
The building has a baroque style, including a „cathedra” in the theatre of the high school, a monumental wooden structure with lecterns and baldachin designated for the presence of the high school’s rector with the occasion of the school ceremonies, authentic furniture, possibly unique in Romania.
Nicolaus Olahus, Alderman Harteneck of the Saxons, Governor Brukenthal, Romulus Cîndea, Emil Sigerus, Julius Bieltz and many others have studied at the Brukenthal High School.
