City Walls Krakow, Poland

Krakow's City Walls

   City Walls in Krakow, which are also known as the Medieval Fortification of the city, were more than two miles long, featuring on its way eight dates and thirty-nine towers.

   The construction of the city walls started in the last decades of the thirteenth century and they were made ten meters high and 2.5 meters thick. Additional lower walls run along them. Further to that, there is a twenty-two wide moat, which is also eight meters deep and was very frightening for the enemies of Krakow.

   During the first years of the nineteenth century, the wall fortifications were claimed as outdated and great part of them was destroyed except the Brama Florianska gate and three towers located close to it, plus the city walls between them and the great barbican set in front of all these sites.

   The main gate of the City Walls was constructed around year 1300 and had a rectangular form of the 33.5-meter high tower which comes with Gothic architecture. The baroque roof that the gate has today was placed there in year 1694, along with the symbol image of Saint Florian on the south wall.

   An interesting fact is that during the Medieval Age, the Polish capital Krakow could be entered through one of the eight gates and in no other way. These gates were closed during the night and their opening was announced by bugle call. The most important of these walls was the Barbican, which was connected to the Florian Gate. In this way the city was kept safe. The city walls were demolished around the nineteenth century as they were deteriorating and the water from the moat smelled badly. On their place was organized a beautifully landscaped garden belt, known as the Planty Park, which became a great place for relaxation and contemplating of the city walls remnants.

   The main gate was the spot where the Royal Road of Krakow began and it is exactly here that all coronation processions, kings, princes and parades started to direct them to the Grand Square and after that to the Wawel Royal Castle. Besides city walls and gates, there were almost forty towers in Krakow, each defended by a different guild of craftsmen and having their name.

   The gate tower Brama Florianska and all city walls that had survived could be seen every day from 10.30h in the morning until 18h in the afternoon. A full tour includes the tower Brama Stolarska, the Florianska gate, as well as the Great Barbican. In the summer inside the City Walls are organized open-air exhibitions of paintings that are available for sale, as well as many performances that attract the visitor's attention.
