Brasov - Houses in the Schei District
The Schei District is said to be the oldest part of Brasov, even predating Bartolomeu. Between 13C-17C, the German forbade anyone else from owning property in the city and the Romanians settle here, outside the fortress walls to the southwest. Entry to this quarter from the walled city was marked by Schei Gate. Today Schei is a residential dead-end, with multicoloured houses standing with their gable ends to the narrow streets.
