The name comes from the nearby Church of St Florian and it was the main gate of the seven leading into the city situated in the line of defence walls. Moreover it was through this gate that kings would enter the city after victorious battles, it was also used for ceremonial reasons by diplomats, and famous personages visiting Kraków. Furthermore the route of royal coronation and funerary processions, led through the gate.

Had the pleasure of staying in a hotel directly across from the gate. The wall and gate are interesting pieces of history that are well preserved. Great to visit if in Krakow but not worth a trip across country to see.
