White Tower / DP

The White Pagoda was built between 1460 and 1494, and today it is deeply impressed by the magnanimity and fantasy of its architectural lines. Summing up its architecture as data, we can say: semi-planning is open; The difference between the level of more than 30 meters and the city wall; Height: 20 meters to the urban area and 18 meters to the hillside; The wall is based on 4m, and the diameter of the tower is measured to 19m. Along its walls, the tower displays meteors, smoke mouths, and stone chisel-shaped cantilever-supported balconies. Fifty-nine meters from the city wall, the tower communicates with it through a movable bridge connecting the tower to Graff Fortress. He overlooks Blumana, five floors above her, the highest fortification point in Brasov. The chimney inside the tower is kept above a chimney, which can also be used to heat the guards and defenders-a nightmare and plowed guild. In 1678, the Mowers Guild fulfilled the tower's defense obligations; The number of craftsmen is low. On April 21, 1689, when the fire came, a blazing fire caused by a strong wind also swept through the White Pagoda, which was only renovated in 1723. Other rehabilitation operations were carried out in 1902, 1974, 2002 and 2005-2006. Today he owns a museum site.
