County Museum of History Brasov / Bastionul Tesatorilor
(24 June 2023)
The History Museum of the City and County of Brasov was founded in 1950 and is located in the former Municipal House in the centre of Piata (Square) Sfatului or, to some extent, in the Tesatorilor Bastion in Brasov (Kronstadt).
The bastion, defended and maintained by the Linen Weavers’ Guild, was built in two stages between 1421 – 1436 and 1570 – 1573. In the first phase, the first two levels of the three battle galleries were built. The upper galleries, built between 1570 and 1573, were for small arms, which could be used through narrow circular firing holes all along the way of the galleries. Two watchtowers were built for the guard, who watched over the city both from a military point of view and from the point of view of observing possible fires.
After restoration, the Weavers’ Bastion was turned into a museum.
