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.

The Ecaterina's Gate is situated near The Schei Gate and it was newly renovated. The Gate was used to enter in the Kronstadt (Brasov citadel) in the medieval times.

It is one of the gates that was used to enter in the old town. You can see the hatchment of the city on it's main facade. It has a small park behind it.

Our first walking stop of the Brasov tour was Catherine’s gate and just before it the Poarta Schei gate.

While the more classical Poarta Schei, built in 1827, used to be the... More
