This is only a quick visit but is central to the main historic wall. You get a real feeling of what the city would be like hundreds of years ago. You almost feel this is the point you leave the city

COME to Krakow and everyone seems to make a beeline for the main Cloth Hall square, but there is so much else to see with history tucked away almost everywhere you go. Part of that includes the lovely St Florian's Gate at the top of Florianska. It is a famous Polish gothic tower built in the 14th century and is... More

I recommend that people take the free walking tour so they can hear all about the history of Krakow and St. Florian's Gate.

This gate, together with the adjecent wall gives you an idea how Cracow must have been in the old days. It's a masterpiece of architecture, now as part of Planty park. From this gate you walk straight into the famous Florian street tot the main square.

Not as the name suggests just a gate! It comprises a short length of wall which was part of the original walled city. You also get a short video of the history which is not language specific. Unfortunately due to it's nature, it is not disability friendly. A nice way to spend half an hour

There's not really much to Florian's Gate, except it's a lovely building at the one remaining gate into the Old Town. Worth a picture. The real attraction is walking under the trees that were planted in the moat-like circle around the Old Town area. You really get a look at Krakovians and the way they spend their leisure time.

St. Florian's gate is a remnant of the fortifications that once ringed the city to help repel the onslaughts of barbarians trying to enter the vibrant medieval Krakow. After serving their purpose for centuries, the crumbling walls were almost completely removed to make way for the expanse of the modern city. At the head of Florian Street and the approach... More

We passed by most days we were out, always lots of tourists here so the locals use this to their advantage, lots of singing, music playing etc, this is one of the main sights in Krakow and should not be missed.
