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!

Gate was built by the Tailors Guild in 1559 for defense instead of an old gate destroyed by the flood in 1526. You must visit and discover full story ;) Correct name is Catherine's Gate

Very Disneyish we were . by and stopped to take a few photo's. Weather was fine and sunny but I do not think I would want to visit here on a wet day not really much to see.

Another of the well kept medieval sites in the old city - by the way, wrong spelling for the name - it should be Ecaterina Gate

This is, hands down, my favorite landmark in Brasov. Its unique architecture, the fact that looking at it you feel like you are back in time, because it an important entry way into the old fortress, together with the amazing botanical park that surrounds it, make this a great destination when visiting Brasov.

Late Medieval city gate allegedly named after the mistress of Vlad the Impaler. The four turrets indicate that the magistrates in Brasov had the right to hold court and pass judgements up to and including the death penalty.

A quite impressive small structure with a nice small park fronting it. In itself not outstanding but within a short distance of many other small sites like the Schei gate next door so well worth a look.
