Lovely old gateway

Passed this gateway en-route to the Black Church. Architecturally beautiful but little else of note. Worth a photo stop at least.

A small gate entrance to the old town or more commonly old town. Easily reached on foot, just a few minutes walk from Council Square and the Black Church, this attraction is also shown on the tourist maps. 2 minutes spent to see this attraction are already too much. From here begins a walking tour marked on billboards on the... More

Nothing much to be honest, it's just a gate. You can just walk from the council square up to a school called Saguna and you can find this gate opposite it.

Well, I went to see this because it looked very cool in pictures. It looks cool in person, and it's old, but...there isn't anything more to it than that. It's an old gate near Schei district, and it kind of looks like something that belongs in Epcot. Neat photo op.

The storybook looking Yekaterina’s Gate, which was the entrance to the old Saxon town dating back to the 1600’s is just a quick walk from the Black Church. It is charming and ads to the "step back in time" that you take while in Brasov. It is worth a visit while strolling through this magical town.

One of the main gates into the old town and easily the best preserved. Its good for a photo op and there's a nice tea room nearby but beyond that its really just a landmark on the greater tour of Brasov.

Nothing special about it. It's nice to take a picture there to post it on facebook, there's also a chill park with benches.

Close to the Black church - a beautiful architecture. Nice spot on your walking tour of the town. Interesting history behind the name.

If you are spending a day strolling around Brasov then its probably worth having a quick look at this, its only a couple minutes from the black church.

Our guide from Brasov free tour told us the story of Yekaterina and how Vlad Tsepesh (Vlad Dracula) fell in love with her, they had kids then she was killed by the locals because of her relationship with Vlad. And they built the gate giving it her name. The gate with its 4 towers was actually showing the visitors of... More
