When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This stretch is the best preserved part of the city wall with the bastion in tact. Easy 5 minute walk from old town.
Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

The Draper's bastion, looks very impressive set amidst the old fortress walls of Medieval Brasov.

Located just at the foot of Tampa Mountain, standing guard over the citadel, it could almost be part of the backdrop to an old Robin Hood or Ivanhoe movie.

Sited in the north-east corner of the city of Brasov, this bastion was built between 1450-1455 and protected by the goldsmith's guild.

Constructed with four levels of wooden galleries, it is of elliptical shape, with a diameter of 16 metres and a height of 20 metres. The walls are 2 metres thick at the base, and on the first level, are provided with shooting holes for the installation of small callibre cannons.

In 1640, the defence of the bastion was taken over by the Guild of Drapers.

Today, the draper's bastion is relatively well preserved, as it was consolidated between 1961-1962 and renovated in 2006.

Well worth a visit, particularly if you're on your way to take the cable-car up to Tampa which is only a few metres away.

Happy holidays!

An old stone structure, cylindrical in shape, which was part of the old city defense system. Simple, with nothing really impressive. Closed to visitors. Take a picture on the go and keep walking.

The bastion itself is not that nice, but if you go at night it is lighted in a very nice way, and also a nice place to take photos (for people not for the bastion itself).

Initially, the bastion belonged to the gold producers in Cetate but, later, it was given to the drapers in Brasov. The Postavarilor Bastion, with its elliptical shape, is located on the northeast corner of the fortress. It has a wall thickness of 2 meters, a height of 20 meters and a diameter of 16 meters. Interesting!

It is a great walk around the wall. Every guild had their own part of the tower to defend during war and this is the draper's quarter . There are information boards to tell you where you are , the guild and how the guilds were organised so they can defend the castle. If you have time you can visit the museum and see the model of the castle as it would be have during medieval and Renaissance times.

This is one of the strong old bastions remaining from the old walls. At a corner of the wall, it was key to the town's defense.

It is the Wall Fortification Attraction that is closest to the Pedestrian Lane or the Republic Street. IT appeared to be undergoing some renovations made of orange bricks laid out horizontally like walls.

Saw it during my walk along the Tampa Promenade. Took several pictures here!

There are a number of fortifications around the city, which are interesting enough in the context of the cities history but also demonstrate the history of warfare & the need to adapt the cities defences to meet the threat of the evolving military technologies of the time.
