Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Visit one of the architectural centerpieces in the city's old town at St. Florian's Gate (Brama Florianska). 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.

  • This is one of the main entrances to the old town of Kraków. And is one of the last pieces left of the wall around the centre of Kraków. A nice entrance to the centre. Walk though the gate to explore the centre!
  • Worthwhile to at least walk through if you are visiting the city. One of the last sections of wall still standing from medieval Kraków.
  • Best place to enter the old town and start your sightseeing.
