Florianska Street starts from the St. Florian Gate - one of the few remaining pieces of the ancient defence structures thath once circled the Krakow's Old Town. Florianska Gate was the main entrance into the city, therefore it was the starting point of the Royal Road which ended on Wawel Hill.
Florianska Street once was the city's main commercial fare and it's full of history. Along with ads of kebabs, clubs and currency exchange offices, many of houses feature age-old murals and inscriptions. Take notice on the following houses:
- House of the Squirrel (Florianska str., 15)
- House of the Negro (Florianska str., 1 at the corner of the Market Square)
- Hotel and restaurant Pod Roza (Florianska str., 14), latin inscription above which reads: "May this building stand until an ant drinks the ocean, and a tortoise circles the earth."
