Krakow is full of nice buildings and the camera is never away it seems. Florian Gate is on a nice route (an almost straight line) from Plac Jana Mariejki to Wawel Castle. It's a decorated tower typical of the times, right next to the Barbican and leading into Florianska, a main shopping street with bars and cafes. It's also in... More

It's worth a walk to see the gate but that is it. You can take in the gate if you walk all the way around the old town through the park area's.

One of the main entrances to the Old Town of Krakow. The gate itself is a part of a fortification. Beautiful and well worth a see attraction.
