Create an itinerary including St. Florian's Gate
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. Add St. Florian's Gate and other attractions to your Krakow trip itinerary using our Krakow trip planner.

  • Beautiful old gate in the centre of town. Worth walking by but I don't think you need to spend much time there.

  • While the gate entrance of the city of Krakow used to be surrounded by walls, people from here were welcomed to meet with the king, and they took him to the yellow at the other end of patience. No one else could enter the city center without control.
  • It is a good monument, the tower brings you inside the big square where you can find a lot of lovely shops for souvenir, local sweets. A the end of the street the beautiful church and a lot of restaurants and bars. Very good
  • Power of nature. Human charge and human lungs.
  • Located near a park and gives a beautiful view as you enter towards the old town. Has a historical significance and nice place to be in summers
  • A magical feeling when you enter inside and find yourself in the city and in front you can see the Marian Church
