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.

Unique sight along the Royal Way entering old Kraków from the north. Local street art is displayed along the remaining walls of Krakow. Continue through to the Barbicon to statues and the mall beyond

Saw it as part of a walking tour as well as while wandering around. It's nice in daylight but I feel a bit more spectacular at night.

We staved in a hotel about 50 metres away from this lovely medieval gate. It was wonderful each day to come out of our front door and see this sight. Artists sell their wares from the walls either side of the gate and if you wander through the gate you come to the Barbican, more medieval history! KFC and McDonalds... More

Very pretty especially at night when all lit up. Another piece of stunning architecture that Poland has to offer.
