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. Although the signs advertise attractive rates what you get is far less. The best rates available are on Slawkowska at Cantor GROSZ which is... More

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!

...at the exchange shops. They will do their best to cheat and steal you, and when I say steal I mean steal. The normal exchange rate is 1 euro/4.1 PLN and they advertise a big number on the front around 4.2. But if you read carefully it says that they sell euro for 4.2 PLN. Nobody there wants to by...

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!

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.
