La Porta di San Floriano (in polacco Brama Floriańska) è una delle torri gotiche polacche più famose e un punto nevralgico del centro storico di Cracovia, in Polonia.
The walking tour I went on started just outside the gate, the guide told us about the history of the gate which was very interesting. There were musicians inside the gate playing music for tourists which was enjoyable to see and hear.
in the middle of old town, as a tourist could every nice thing happened for you here. I personally Like it
A quick view of "The Gate" is essential. At night, it becomes even better.
Impressive old fortress gate, part of the old wall around Krakow. Worth the short amble from the main square.
This gives you the welcome to a great and beautiful center city in Krakow.
One of the main tourist attractions in Krakow due to being one of the oldest. Built too protect the city from invasion somewhat successfully but not always. Walking tours in the area can give a full history background which are very interesting and informative and cheap. Most of the attraction can be seen in less than half an hour. Well worth it even in bad -14 weather.
I loved the medieval look of this area. Beautiful place full of history. It was built to protect Krakow from invasion. Free walking tours start here too
Highly recommended as its amazingly pretty and the tickets allow you free entry to a couple of other places
This is the meeting place for many of the walking tours. Beautiful and historic.
Really wished we would have had more time in Krakow. It's a fabulous old city with so much to see and do. Only saw St Florian's gate late at night as we walked through it on the way back from dinner and again early in the morning on the day we had to leave. Part of Krakow's old city walls extend on both sides. I'll have to come back some day to see what is inside
Really nice old feature of the original wall. Underneath in the archway there is also a Catholic shrine and regularly very talented buskers. The arch forms to the start of the route that newly crowned Polish monarchs would proceed down. Definitely an iconic landmark of Krakow and worth seeing if you are on this side of the old town.
Worth a visit. This landmark is local to whete we were staying. It's worth a visit.
The south face of St. Florian's Gate is adorned with an 18th-century bas-relief of St. Florian. The tower's north face bears a stone eagle that was carved in 1882 by Zygmunt Langman, based on a design by painter Jan Matejko. Inside the gate is an altar with a late-Baroque copy of a classicist painting of the Piaskowa Madonna. The Florianska Gate is the only city gate, of the original eight built in the Middle Ages that was not dismantled during the 19th-century modernization of Kraków. The adjoining city walls and two additional, smaller towers had been preserved and today host street displays of amateur art available for purchase.
