About this place
Poarta Ecaterinei a fost construită, pentru a facilita accesul șcheienilor în Brașov, la mijlocul laturii dintre Bastionul Țesătorilor și cel al Fierarilor, pe locul unei vechi porți din veacul al XIV-lea sau al XV-lea, distrusă de inundația din 24 august 1526, cât și în urma năvălirilor turcești.

Katalin gate, one of the oldest gates in town but undeniably the most beautiful is still preserved in its original state. In the course of history it used to be known under several names: Felső (Upper) gate, Corpus Christi and Saint Catherine, which is used today. The gate is located near Schei gate…
..to relax on a bench and admire the old city gates. ps: a taxi station is net to the park ;)
My favorite old building in town is Ecaterina's Gate, near the famous Schei Gate. It's part of the medieval defense wall system of Brasov.
A beautiful landmark of Brașov. Looks like a tiny castle with an archway, with small gardens around it. Very picturesque and on the way to other attractions. It's right next door to Poarta Schei so you won't have to wander around to find it. It is the only gate of Brasov that still stands delimiting…
