Ecaterina's gate are one of the oldest monuments of Brasov. The gate was the border of citadel and everything that needed to be kept outside. From the Tampa you can see the walls and the gate of the old fortress.

This old, fortified city gate is a nice part of your walk around Brasov. No longer used for traffic, it is well maintained.

This is the only original city gate form the 16.th century. This gate was used, by the Hungarians and the Rumanians, as in the old city only the Saxons could live and have any shop.

As a separate object, Catherine's gate is nothing special, though it is a beautiful building, well-restored, good place to make a pic or two. There is also an information board to read about it and a small park to rest – both inside and outside the gate.
