This is the memorial place for Balazs Orban, but one can still find these kind of gates in Transylvanian villages. The gates are traditionally made from long-lasting wood such as oak, and develop a beautiful dark color over the years. The gateposts and the section above the pedestrian gate are richly carved in relief with motifs that are typical: floral patterns, the sun, the moon and the stars.
