Nice and just that

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

The Catherine's Gate (Poarta Ecaterinei) was built in the middle of the 16th century in the place of an older destroyed access to the fortress of Brasov (so it's not that "medieval" as some tourist guides say). Nevertheless it is a great landmark of the city and is fairly easy to find if you walk 100-150 meters from the Black... More

Yekaterina's gate was the start of our walking tour of Brasov. It is medieval and the entrance to the old town.

Very interesting city entrance to the old walled Saxon town of Kronstadt. There is an info panel in English on the site but no signs elsewhere in Brasov to direct you to the old town walls and fortifications.

Yekaterinas Gate is the only remaining city gate from medieval times. It was erected by the Tailors' Guild in 1559. The four small corner turrets symbolise that the town had judicial autonomy and therefore the right to decide on capital punishment. Parts of the old town walls can be seen here as well.Directions: The Yekaterinas Gate is situated at the... More

The gate led from the Romanian side of town to the German side of town. It looks like something from a children's book because they have restored it so well.

this is the only original city gate that survided in time. Very impresive are the four small corner turrets, this makes the gate look unreal .... or like in a fairytale. You have to see this, and is very close to the city center.
