Tiny castle

Looks like a tiny castle with an archway, there are small gardens around it. Very picturesque and on the way to other attractions.

Catherine's Gate is one of the oldest, but certainly the most beautiful goal that has kept its original state. It lies just Schei Gate, and was for centuries the only gate that permitted west of the city. Square building with four towers as a sign of jurisdiction was provided with a drawbridge to ensure passage over moat and inside wooden... More

During our free walking tour of Brasov, we got to see many sites/attractions. The gate is quite beautiful, especially now covered in snow. Cristina our guide informed us that the gate was built in the 16c' by the tailors guild, the turrets signify the rule of the sword. We enjoyed seeing the gate, during our walk of the old town.

Not much to visit, but it's a very nice piece of architecture. It used to mark the autonomy of the city, meaning it could apply the capital punishment.

I felt like in the Middle Ages, it looks amazing and it is easy reachable from the Council Square. I know it as Catherine's Gate. According the data i got, it had been erected in 1559 by the Tailors' Guild and it is the only original gate to have survived from medieval times. The tower we see today had been... More

Whilst wandering around Brasov we stumbled across this gate in a park and it is just lovely with such impressive spires. We sat opposite it and stared for ages - would recommend walking by!
