One of tourist attractions of my town is the Museum of Printing and Old Romanian Book.The museum shows a series of aspects regarding the writing and printing development on the Romanian territory. Targoviste represented for the Romanian culture the first typographical center, with large spreading in the country and outside it. The museum presents religious and laical type books, documents and manuscripts, the first journals in Romanian language and instrumentation typical to the printing machines.
The printing press of the eighteenth century is the centerpiece of the museum.
Below are some exhibits that are worth seeing if you visit Targoviste.
Among the books printed here is “The straightening of the law” (1652) one of the first lay books from Tara Romaneasca.
So, if you come in Targoviste, do not hesitate to visit the Printing Museum. I’m waiting for you! 🙂
