Gate of the old town

Nothing extremely special, increases the impressivity of the streets in the old town. When you take a long stroll through these streets, take a glimpse at the gate.

Walking through the gate is a pleasing experience in itself, The guide explained its history and that was interesting and worthwhile, It would be a shame to see Krakow and not go to see the gate.

Wonderful gate that was once closed to wall out the city from intruders. Lots of history here and now many sellers in the street with great art work and local art. Very crowded on the weekends especially in better weather. Great restaurants and bars in the area. Wear comfortable shoes as there's a lot of walking through out the area.

We stayed right opposite this gate and looking out every morning to see all the street sellers and their amazing art. Singers and the throng of people made this place magical and would definitely return as it is just beside market square.

The gate is at the end of a nice shopping street with bars and restaurants. We just kind of stumbled upon it after dinner and enjoyed a look around it.

Not a lot to see, but nice to walk on the upper level of the remaining city walls. If you visit the Wawel castle, this is the other end of the royal route through town.

Seriously, just walking Old Town and you will find it. It's at the end of Florian St.... and you will be walking on this busy popular street. In September they have the annual Dachshund Parade and all Doxie's met just outside the gate and were dressed quite fashionably and what fun. Life is an endless adventure just by being in... More
