Nothing spectacular if you've traveled around Europe. Still, an attractive remnant of Krakow's city wall. Good view and photo op of the historic district from the interior, which includes a small chapel. The gate itself is also worth a photo.

At the top end of Ulica Florianska and part of the old fortifications and city wall is this superbly preserved and attractive Gothic gateway. Protected by the Barbican to the north Florian's Gate is part of Krakow's old history and stands as a simple structure representing the past, built in the fourteenth Century. You'll no doubt visit the street and... More

Walk up Florianska street after visiting St Mary's Basilica, stopping for a cup of very good coffee on the right hand corner. Absorb the atmosphere, visit the art shop on the left hand side at the very end before the tower, listen to the street buskers - they are a cut above the norm in this city - many of... More

This in a excellent place to go spend a afternoon. It is the old 14th Century building that is one of the best-known Polish Gothic towers, and a focal point of Kraków's Old Town. It was built about the 14th century as a rectangular Gothic tower of "wild stone", part of the city fortifications against Turkish attack. Very nice place... More

The visit to Kraków must have a walk through the Florian's Gate and the Florianska Street. Besides the medieval architecture, you can find several interesting stores and good restaurants.

These towers and the falls are what is left of once an extensive fortification to the city and now the structure serves as a gate to the Old town and the market. While visiting the place you could also try one of the restaurants or pubs around or settle in for street artists and their works on sale. In whole... More
