Thirteenth century defensive wall.

St. Florian is the patron saint of Krakow. This is one of seven gates in a three kilometer long wall with accompanying moat for this medieval fortress.

Built as part of a protective rampart around Kraków, the gate named after St. Florian became the main entryway to the Old Town. It was connected by a bridge to the circular barbican erected of brick on the other side of the moat. See this as part of your walking tour of the old town.

Beautiful gate, so well restored and a beautiful start for one of the most picturesque streets in Krakow. A real must visit. Recommend to get early in the morning for beautiful light in the street. Note the depiction of St Florian on its side facing the Florianska.

My AirBNB was north of here and I passed this way each day. I loved this gate and what a great historical gate this architecture represented. This was one of the first sights I saw when I arrived in Krakow. A very beautiful entry way to the old town.

The gate at the northern end of the old town has short sections of the old city wall on each side of it plus you can see the foundations of the barbican

A lovely old city gate that most visitors to the main square have to pass through. If you get the chance to pass through here, have a look at the rather rude looking castings on the outside corners! I'm not sure exactly what they are, but I know what they looked like to me, they certainly attracted a lot of... More

St Florian's Gate is a beautiful historic gate and entrance to the historic old town in Krakow. Walking through this will bring you to Florianska street which leads you directly to St Mary's Basilica and the main market square.
