“Rich in history and adapted to blind visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

For those who posted that this place is poor I really feel sorry for as its an amazing place that you absolutely must go with a guide. Its not ostentatious like so many other places but its one of the most important places in Krakow. Take a few minutes to observe the miniature in metal that its there and surprise yourself with the care they had to show this place for the people that cant see, all its explained in braille as well.

“Impressive Gate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

You'll probably find yourself seeing this gate during one of your adventures around Krakow, but don't just be a passerby. Spend at least a few minutes admiring it, its really cool!

“Impressive gate...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

...that really lets you recreate the original state of this powerful city-fortress. The original walls are still standing on both sides next to the gate, enhancing this medieval feeling.

“Passed in several times, stop listening to musicians”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The St. Florian's gate was the port between over hotel and a flat we were visiting. The Gate is worth seeing, especially because every time we passed the gate we always was listening to some musicians playing national music.
