Photographer's Note

Ecaterina's Gate was built in 1559 for defensive purposes. It is the only original city gate to have survived from medieval times. In fact the fairy-tale looking tower is only a part of the original gate; documents talk about the existence of a wooden structure which was demolished in 1827. The original structure can be seen at he Weaver's Bastion where the large model of Brasov in 1600 is displayed. (brasovtravelguide.ro)
