Schei gate is right next to Ecaterina's gate and was built in between 1827 and 1828 in order to let through heightened traffic. Ecaterina's gate was built up then and since then used as storage. The stone and brick gate built in classical style has three openings. The middle arch, shaped for traffic, is larger, and on its both sides there are two smaller and lower openings for pedestrians. The Latin inscriptions on the wall let us know the construction date, but they also inform us that the gate was built after the emperor Francis I visited Brasov in 1817.
