Defensive Walls

ul. Pijarska

Public visiting hours:
Defensive wall:
April - October everyday 10.30-18.00
The preserved section of the Defensive Walls on ul. Pijarska was made accessible to visitors in June of 2007, on the occasion of the 750th anniversary of the re-planning of the city under the Magdeburg Law. From among the once-powerful medieval fortifications of Krakow only one section of the city wall, about 200 metres long, has been preserved intact, with the St. Florian Gate and three bastions (the Haberdashers', the Carpenters, and the Joiners'). For centuries the St. Florian Gate and the Barbican were connected by a "neck". In modern times the gate assumed a symbolic significance as the entrance gate to the city on the famous Royal Route (Via Regia).
