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

Not a place to visit in itself but an interesting and picturesque place .The gateway to the Old medieval town and an information board tells you in English a little of its past Worth a visit

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
