The Florianska Gate

ul. Floriańska, Kraków

Built at the turn of the13th/14th centuries with neighbouring walls and three towers, the gate was part of the powerful three-kilometre fortification system which once surrounded Krakow. It was reinforced with 47 towers, eight gates and a moat. Florianska Gate marked the beginning of the Royal Route, which royal and envoy processions took on their way to Wawel Castle. In the19th c., the city walls were demolished and replaced by Planty Park.
