Can be reached from the old town via stairs (not for the faint of heart). Offers great panoramas over the old town. Two small towers keep watch over old Brasov from the Warthe hill on the northern side of the city: the so-called White and Black towers. While not identical (the white tower, above, is much larger) - were nevertheless built at the same time, late in the 15th century.

Great less touristic place, good views of the old town. Can be accessed by hidden stairs located at the bottom of the hill facing the old town, starting next to a coffee shop facing the central park.

Built by the Tailors’ Guild, in 1559 for defensive purposes instead of an old gate destroyed by the flood in 1526. It is named after St. Catherine's Monastery that was situated here in former times. It is the only original city gate to have survived from medieval times.

Less touristic old neighbourhood: Șchei
I really recommend this part of the old town, and better yet, very few tourists know about it in comparison to the busy old town. This village-like section of the town is mostly made up of small houses built along narrow roads with gardens and small fields on the sides of the mountains. Until the 17th century, the inhabitants of Şchei were forbidden from owning property inside the city walls. You can easily spend half a day here walking around the neighbourhood, the narrow steep streets and Unirii square.
