Bastionul Graft, Brasov

4.3
#11 of 14 in Sightseeing in Brasov
Landmark Tourist Spot
Located on fortified walls that once encircled medieval Brasov, Bastionul Graft houses a small collection belonging to a regional history museum. The two-story bastion was built in the first quarter of the 16th century and served as a passage for soldiers commuting between the city and the tower. Notice the walls' loopholes and crevices, which were used for pouring boiling water on the enemy. The museum on the second floor features weapons, armor, and lithographs of the city’s ancient fortifications.

  • One of the few very well preserved monuments of old Brasov. A must place to see.
  • Simply beautiful and great air cause of the little cascades everywhere in that cute little river that goes alongside your path.
  • Inside of the wall. Very unusual to me. Maybe it is very normal for 15-th century.
  • Not much to see since they closed the museum in here
  • After walls Street is one of the most peaceful and loaded location history in Brașov
