  Catherine's Gate, Brasov
by antistar

The much more imposing Catherine's Gate was built right at the end of the medieval period when the city's fate was dependent on its ability to fend off local warlords, raiders and greedy monarchs. The tower is tough, imposing and a veritable bastion.

Today it sits in a small, quiet park, and doesn't even have any walls left to defend.

Directions: Take a right into the park after leaving the medieval city through Schei Gate.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
