Admission is free to the public, but the school does not work package and to open you should consult a villager.
The Charter was a monumental map, because the time of Riga there was a great lack of maps. Rigas dealt with the construction of maps not only to meet this shortage, but also to enlighten the genus. These maps are not only geographical, but also contain many historical elements. The Charter has a prominent place in world history because of its symbolism and its general cartographic value. It also contained military signs, information, drawings, ancient coins, glorious men lists, dates of battles and ancient epigrams. This important copy came to Kapesovo after its purchase by a Kapesovo merchant who lived in Vienna in 1797, ie the year in which was printed the Charter of Greece. Visitors to the School cannot access the original. But they can see other rare editions. From these the history of Thucydides of 1816 distinguish.
