Bastionul Graft, Brasov

4.3
#41 of 111 in Things to do in Brasov
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.

  • This is one of my favourite spots in Brasov! It's a bit hidden, you have medieval walls and a small, lovely stream and you can take a nice walk in any season. The atmosphere here is different. :) Last...  more »
  • The path to this bastion is very nice, with scenic views. Inside, we can see a museum with only two rooms, but from here, you can go up to White Tower.  more »
  • If walking in the Center, then certainly it is necessary to visit and bastion. And although a few steps already parking, still 20 meters you can be in a different time

  • 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.
  • It is a historical place on the old city walls
  • Nice, interesting
  • Inside of the wall. Very unusual to me. Maybe it is very normal for 15-th century.
