St. Florian's Gate, Krakow

4.5
#32 of 731 in Things to do in Krakow
Visit one of the architectural centerpieces in the city's old town at St. Florian's Gate. Built in the 14th century as part of a defensive wall against Turkish invasion, the tower has been restored since World War II, and its stone and colorful bas-relief of Saint Florin look almost new. The attraction also marks the beginning of the Royal Road, a route taken by the royal family through the center of town. At some point on your visit you may walk under the tower on your way into the center. Consider commemorating your introduction to Krakow with a photo near the iconic attraction.

  • After the Krakow authorities decided to build a ring of fortress walls, nearly fifty towers and eight fortified gates were built. Then almost all the towers and gates were dismantled, but only one gate remained. It has been preserved as a historic monument. The gateway is now one of the most important tourist routes.

  • Beautiful Old City gate. When you walk through the gate the city is sold both left and right local art which is worth a look.

  • It is a very interesting gate, it is beautiful because its ornaments which are very old and are very well maintained, it does not seem having been modified from its original design so it looks the old fashion style. There is no need to pay so it is wonderful to spend time to behold the building and imagine the ancient world.
  • Beautiful picturesque place. At night the beauty intensify in light. Must see.
