About Poarta Ecaterina

Poarta Ecaterina, or Catherine's Gate, is one of the oldest gates in Brașov and the only original city gate to have survived from medieval times. Built in 1559 by the Tailors' Guild, it is an excellent example of Renaissance architecture with a fairy-tale turret that adds to its picturesque charm.

Best Time/Season to Visit:

The gate can be visited year-round, but it is particularly enchanting during the spring and autumn months when the weather is pleasant for walking tours around the old city.
