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.

This was once the only gate the original romanians were allowed to use to enter the city. On the old city side there is a nice little park. Walking distance from old town center

Nice architecture and near a park like area. It's just a few blocks from the square and where it starts to be more of a residential area.

This gate was built in 1559 for defensive purposes. It is the only original gate surviving from medieval times.
