“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The history behind this place is very interesting and the Barbican is excellent. You also see the last two parts of remaing wall which surrounded the City.

“Remains of the fortifications”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

You must see it as part of your travels around the city but not one of the essentials. It does however sit in a reasonably attractive corner of the city and could be seen in conjunction with a visit to the Barbican.

hat a nice entry into the town of Kracow. The artists portraits and scenic paintings hang on the wall are great. A real photographic opportunity and a beautiful part of the town

“The entry to the world long gone.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

To be in Krakow and not see and go through the Brama Florianska would be like going to Rome and not seeing the Coliseum. After you pass through it, you are on a very lively Florianska Street that is lined with great stores and restaurants. It is always very busy but worth seeing and shopping there.(Although the prices are quite high in most of the stores).
