At the far end of Krakow town, worth the walk along main street leading up to gate, steeped in history as this is where kings & queens entered the main town along to the castle, the pope also travelled through here on his pagan visit,

It used to be official entry to Krakow connected to Barbican. Right now you can explore it and see the view of the neighbourhood streets from the defensive... More

At the end of a busy shopping street stand St. Florians Gate, spellbinding especially at night, one could almost not notice the McDonald's next to it.
