I visited with friends and my partner before Christmas 2015 and was taken in by the advertised currency exchange rate promoted in the window of the exchange booth. However, when we actually got our money exchanged they used the rates printed on a very small board located on their desk which was less generous, and harder to see. When we... More

Florians Gate is in great condition. He was a roman soldier who was catholic and was later drowned for his beliefs. So they now use his image for the firefighters saying that he protects the city from fires.

We wandered through this area on our way to the Barbican and the Galeria Krakowska. There are many people selling pictures and it is well worth a look.

This is one of the stops best achieved on a buggy tour where the guide can provide some of the history behind it. Lovely photo opportunity.

We passed by the gate after a walk in Planty Park. It's recommended for those who are interested in architecture and artworks.

The most beautiful thing about Krakow is the abundance of well preserved Medieval architecture. St Florian's Gate is located at the end of a busy street full of shops and restaurants. If you have the opportunity to take a guided walking/bike tour, do so. The guides are so knowledgeable about Krakow's history that it is impossible to not be even... More

Do yourself a favour and take 30 minutes to walk through Planty Park to the Florian Gate. That's one. Enjoy the artwork displayed on the city walls immediately adjacent. That's two. Take a few minutes to appreciate the music of the buskers that fight for the excellent acoustics of this prime tourist location. Then check out the Barbican, the last... More

Right behind the Barbican, the gate stands tall and elegant and is connected to teh last remain of the old city wall where contemporary painters show their wares/works. Some musicians ply their trade too... Well worth spending a little time as the atmosphere is quite pleasant.

This gate is gorgeous! An absolute must see in Kraków. Local artists display their art work for sale and admiration alone the wall of the gate. Stop by to pick up some art or take photos of your surroundings. A lovely spot to visit!
