Owner description: Encircling the Old Town district, this 14th-century gate and its four towers are the remnants of the city's fortifications, most of which were destroyed at the beginning of the nineteenth century.

It is worth to watch it, but it does not make sense to buy a special ticket to get in, because there is nothing especially interesting, what would you have not seen before. However, the ticket also allows you to watch the Barbican, so it's probably the only reason to buy it ;)

We stumbled upon St. Florian's Gate not even knowing it existed! It's a lovely feature in the middle of the city. We got some beautiful photos here.

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.

We stumbled upon this by accident if you'll believe it! A really lovely, extremely well built gate. It seems like it's in a really strange place, a bit like it's been abandoned in the middle of the city when they forgot to put it in the design, but a really lovely area. You wouldn't believe you're in the middle of a busy city.
