It is amazing. There is nothing else to say. It is grand and was the entrance used by royalty for hundreds of years when they came into the city. The gate is still part of the remaining fortifications that only surround the one side of the city. Interesting fact: this part of the wall was saved because of two logical reasons. When the Austrians were tearing down the fortifications from the rest of Krakow, they were persuaded to keep this small length of the wall to keep diseased "wind" from blowing down the royal route and to stop ladies dresses from blowing, i.e. help keep ladies dignities. It is a true story; it is written in the archives.
