Krakow Urn City is the starting point of Krakow’s Old City. Now there is a round castle left. At the junction of the old city and the new city, it is unique among the traffic. This was once known as an excellent defense project in the Middle Ages. Connected, there is a passage straight through St. Florian’s Gate, built in the Middle Ages, in order to resist the invasion of the enemy, the most complete, together with the moat wall surrounding the entire Royal City of Krakow.
It is a red brick circular fortress, which looks a lot like the Urn City in China-yes, this is the Urn City in Krakow. In the past, there was a passage directly connected to the Florian Gate. It is now a museum and it is open on Monday. Tickets for the Florian Gate are also common here. Several exhibition panels introduced the evolution of Krakow’s city defense system. As part of the city’s outpost defense system, this kind of circular urn city once bloomed all over Europe, but only three of the same shape can remain today.
The Krakow Urn City Barbakan Krakowski was built around 1498. It was Krakow’s first line of defense against foreign aggression. It was set up outside the moat as an outpost and connected to the city gate by a bridge to form a complete urban defense system. After exiting the Krakow Railway Station, walk towards the Old Town in 5 minutes. The Wengcheng is a cylindrical brick structure, adjacent to the moat. The courtyard in the middle is 24.4 meters in diameter. There are seven forts and 130 blastholes on the 3-meter thick wall. There is a small stele on the east wall to commemorate the feat of Krakow’s mission of shooting and killing a Russian colonel to defend the city. Tickets are 6 yuan.
The preservation is very complete, although it is small, it is still very beautiful.
Only in the daytime can you climb the city wall. The ring-shaped ancient military fortress is very delicately designed. The hollow on the wall is a bow and arrow, which separates the new city from the old city one after another.
