St Florins Gate is a lovely and well preserved building on the outskirts of the city centre. I found it very peaceful here as there are lots of trees around and little noise, although I did visit in bad weather so that might have kept people away. Its worth taking in as part of a walking tour of the city... More

This gate is the apparently the last remaining of the original gates (from what I could see). It is really hard to miss as you walk down the shopping street. I loved the painting of St Florian on the inside and the carving on the outside. The city has done a wonderful job maintaining this wonderful piece of history.

If your walking around the Old Town you are most likely going to see this beautiful Tower. In an area of outstanding architecture the tower looks amazing and at night very evocative. The amount of people who take photos is mind boggling and it's certainly a great focal point. Very easy to locate on Ul.Pijarska in a great area packed... More

Whilst in Krakow, we went on a buggy tour around the old city area. Whilst on the buggy tour came across here, and the tour guide told us all about the history, interesting. Many people around here, and also people selling paintings that looked very nice. But didn't stop as we were on the tour. Would defo recommend the buggy... More

Take your time and look at the architecture of this old city entry gate. This is remnants of the original city wall.
