If this is your fist time in Krakow you should approach the main square through this gate - it is magnificent.

St Florian's Gate and nearby The Barbican are the only remains from the city's fortification many centuries ago. These fortifications have now been replaced by gardens encircling the old town.

St. Florian's Gate is one of the symbols of Krakow, on your way from the Main Station towards the The Historic Old Town. The gate is a remnant of the 13th-century fortifications, which formed a several-kilometer strip of double walls, reinforced with towers and gates.

Beautiful building and the surrounding area is fabulous and well worth a visit. The walk around the park surrounding the gate and walls is lovely and feels safe. Just make sure you take a drink with you as it takes a while, but worth it.
