Drvena kapija i oluk.

Pogled na drvenu kapiju i oluk, na kuci u Cupriji.
Kapija je gradjevinski elemenat i elemenat arhitekture koji omogucava prolaz kroz odbrambenu liniju utvrdjene celine. Rec „kapija” je poreklom turska.
Kapija ima po pravilu bezbednostni karakter, odredjuje ko moze da stupi odnosno izadje iz utvrdjene celine – prostora i kao glavni komunikacioni i bezbednosni sistem odredjuje granice izmedju sigurnosti unutar i svet izvan utvrdjenja. Kapijama su bile opremljene srednjovekovne utvrde, manastiri, palate i gradovi.



Wooden gate and gutter.

A view of the wooden gate and gutter, on the house in Cuprija.
A gate is a building element and an element of architecture that allows passage through the defensive line of a fortified unit. The word "gate" is of Turkish origin.
As a rule, the gate has a security character, it determines who can enter or exit the fortified unit - space, and as the main communication and security system, it determines the boundaries between security inside and the world outside the fortification. Medieval fortresses, monasteries, palaces and cities were equipped with gates.
