See this old gate, once the only entrance that Romanians could use to enter the Saxon town. Well restored.

Now part of the university, the old city gate stands proud. Walk through the park to see it. You don't need much time here- just a walk by and photo stop. Supposedly it's one of the original city gates from the 16th century.

I easily walked to the gate from the Old Town Center. It is a stand- alone gate, pretty, photogenic, then move on . Try find parts of the old wall and some towers bordering the tram line (the mountain and Brasov sign side) of town....More

This is the most ornate of all the remaining city gates in Brasov and has been well maintained. Nothing to enter or explore - just admire it briefly, walk under the arch and then just walk on by. Historical landmark rather than a tourist hotspot.

This is a gate of the old city wall - and to be honest it is just a large gate and in my mind nothing special.

Interesting. The name that was on the sign next to the gate, at Brasov, was "Porta Sanctae Katharinae."
