Vízaknai Miklós’s castle was first mentioned in the village in 1467. In 1598, it became subject to the rule of Mihai Viteazu, voivode of Wallachia. Afterwards it belonged to the Gálfi family, and in 1629 it was granted by Bethlen Gábor to Toldi György, whose family maintained ownership of the castle until the middle of the 19th century.
The Brașov Fortress is located on a hill, 64 m above the city of Brașov, at 651 m above sea level. The hill's eastern side belongs to Old Brașov and its western side to Bolonya. The Fortress was built in wood in 1524 and it contained a semi-circle tower surrounded by a wall. In 1529, Petru Rareș the Moldavian vajda who supported king John conquered and demolished the citadel of Brasov that took king Ferdinand's side.
One and a half century later, at the turn of the 18th century, the owner of the time, Baron Wesselényi István VI, incorporated the renaissance manor in a new, classicist castle with a U-shaped layout. The construction works most likely ended around 1816, as the wrought iron gate and fence, which once displayed the year number and the family crest, were installed in that year. The urns from the gate pillars hint towards the beginning of the 19th century as well.
