This is one of the main streets leading into the old town square. Every second shop on it is a currency exchange shop, but avoid changing money here. DO NOT CHANGE MONEY HERE IT IS ROBBERY.

This street has the old town feel with updated stores that sell everything. Lots of currency exchange places here, some do the buy-price scam, just look around you - can find a honest one and the people selling the tours can be a pain. Overall, a bustling street in a beautiful city!

Commercialized but architecturally authentic. Walk the length to see what a medieval city would have looked like.

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!
