The casernes along the route from Selimbar to the southeast end of the village of Sibiu, which previously housed the Cavalry Instruction Center, are now occupied by a school of officer candidates. The students number about 2,000 and the course of study lasts for two years. A part of each caserne still contains a riding school and when a competitive horse event takes place, the riders leave their quarters to participate. 2. The old officers' infantry school, which from 1910 until 1916 housed the Faculty of Medicine now in Cluj, is presently occupied by a new military school. This school is located in the southwest of Sibiu along the west side of the road leading to Poplaca and not far from the main cemetery to the north of-the forest of Dmabrava. The 400 students, non-caeissioned and commissioned officers, wear black epaulets with two intersecting metallic ribbons. In 1952-1953, an impressive gymnasium was built on the school's grounds.
