Kraków, alongside the palaces, was highly defenced as the former royal city. The entrance of Kraków Old Town was heavily guarded. Few city walls have remained in the fire of wars, but castle-like city gate Kraków Barbican has remained at the entrance.
In Kraków Barbican, you are like staying in the castle in an online game or a fairy tale as if there is an evil dragon which imprisons a beautiful princess waiting for the rescue by the brave. In reality, yet, you cannot find any dragons but a range of fabulous exhibitions about this ancient royal city. Although you cannot be a dragon slayer, you can enjoy some wonderful time in the cultural activities and get to know more about the history and culture there.
