The Market Square at one end and the Florian Gate at the other with everything for tourists in between. Great street to just stroll along in the evening. No traffic - just watch out for the horse carriages.

Ulica Florianska has existed since the middle ages and was part of the Royal Route (Droga Królewska). At the top end is St. Florian's Gate. Built in 1307 and the last remaining part of the medieval city wall which once circled the city. At the bottom end is St Mary's Basilica and the Town Square. Today there are mostly restaurants,...

It's a pretty lovely street with stores around and extremely nice ice cream. Here one also can find Lost Soul Alley, which was extremely fun and described in separate review. Recommend!

There's nothing special, but you can find there whatever you want: Mc Donald's, Coffee Heaven, a lot of souvenir stores etc. At the end of the street there's a Floriańska Gate which has got a beautiful history - you can ask a guide about it.

This is full of all the usual tourist shops. But it is a fun walk. Stop at the McDonald's and see the medieval basement which was discovered about 15 years ago (you can eat in it). The tower and fort at the end are beautiful.

The Ulica Florianska connects the Florian Gate to the north with the central square and forms a main thoroughfare through the old quarter. The street itself is a wash with historical and interesting buildings and well worth a walk along, with its many retail outlets inter mingling with bars and restaurants. It's interesting and does connect a couple of Krakow's... More

Our hotel (Pod Roza) was on this street. It is a tourist honeypot. Watch out for those exchange touts along here - we got done (once). A pity the street ends with a McDonald's, right in front of the Florian Gate! Not always peaceful even early in the morning - office girls waiting to go to work ducking out of... More

This is a vary famous street in Krakow and also undoubtedly impressive as well. The Whole Ulica Florianska is a street filled with restaurants, cafes and various shops perfect for window shopping or otherwise and eventually sitting down to have a nice lunch or drink. You could also use with a nice stroll through its alleys. Since it is famous,... More

I could spend an afternoon here without trying. Lovely shops, bars and cafes - even had a good manicure at Sephora with Opi nail varnish finish for half the price you'd pay in the UK.
