A part of the colourful history of the city, I enjoyed seeing this as part of the free walking tour and felt I got much more from this with more background informtation. A stone's throw from the Barbican, this is good to see in conjunction with the other elements of the old cities defences.

I really enjoyed the area where this gate was! My friends and I often used it as a landmark to meet at and to use as the starting point of shopping exhibitions due to the large amount of good ATMs, and good kantors in the street. Along this strip I did have coffee at a lovely lovely shop, they had... More

Worth taking in as part of a general wander but you won't need to linger for long. Artwork is displayed for sale on the walls either side of the gate.

Just a nice architectural gate but still worth the five minute detour from the main square. Always music played underneath.

The only thing that makes this better than just average is the Black Madonna in the gate and the the nearby Barbarian (which was closed). Good to include in a stroll around town but not worth a special visit. One good thing is the best places to change money (Kantor) are in the street parallel to the avenue at the... More

Really cool Gate House (if you could call it that) at the edge of the Old Quarter, just off Market Square, leading through into Planty Gardens

we passed through the gate from our hotel. Also, every tour should take you there as well, we got there with the Free tour and got some additional historical background. the place is well reserved and worth seeing It's a decorated tower typical of the times, right next to the Barbican and leading into Florianska, a main shopping street with...
