St Florian's Gate

The only access gate into the city to have survived out of the eight of the medieval wall, it was the main entrance to the Royal Way. The 34.5m-tall tower, built in stone in the 13C, was completed at the end of the following century, with red bricks, before its crenelated summit was covered in 1694 by a small Baroque dome. Today, the stones of the surrounding wall serve as picture rails to Kraków's street painters.
