What's left of the old town walls Jul 16, 2008
The Barbakan and Florianus gates are practically all that's left of the old city walls, that used to protect Krakow from it's enemies. What is now the Planty park used to be a moat, and all up in the north is were you will find the last two gates. Barbakan is like a small round fortress, while the Florianus gate is basically a tower. I expected more from these two buildings after what I'd read about them, though when seeing them I didn't think they were very impressive. You can enter and make a walk over the old wall, but we didn't do so. If I remember correctly the price would be somewhat around 6 PLN.

But anyway, these remainders are nice to walk past, especially on a sunny day. It is hard to miss them too, as they are on a main crossroad and at the end of the popular Florianska street.
