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.

When going from the main station to the city center, it's almost impossible to miss the Florianska gate with a small part of the city walls attached.

The steps inside are extremely steep, and when you reach the top, there's an informative, well-presented short film in English, about the background of Defensive Walls of Krakow. On the way out, you get to go along the outside of the Gate, and exit... More

The gate is small, easy to pass by, but it’s worth to finalize your Old Krakow tour by going out through this gate. A lot of paintings are offered for sell here, and very tasty coffee in café nearby the gate.
