Overview of Krakow Barbican

The Barbican is a gateway fortification connected to the city's defensive walls. This brick moated structure is one of the last remaining examples of such fortifications Europe. Constructed in 1498 in Gothic style, with a wall that is 3 meter stick and an inner courtyard with a 25 meter diameter, it is frequently called a ‘masterpiece of medieval military engineering.’ It has seven turrets and 130 defensive slots. Even though it is not exactly a museum, and you can usually just cover all of it in 15 minutes, it is a popular place for exhibitions, concerts and theatre in the summer. Check the calendar online for possible events. And try not to be upset at the sight of pigeons who keep flying into the netting and dying. Apart from that, it has an almost fairy-tale appeal.

Barbakan Krakowski, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review

  • 15th century fortified gate. Small but nice design, surrounded by water as usually seen in movies. Now it has been kept as museum.

  • A small fortress in front of Krakow old town main gate. A short stop for some photo taking before going into the old town. I recommend not staying too long where you have the magnificent old town ahead of you.

  • A beautiful old historic fortress buiding, but it would have been nice to be able to get inside it.

  • Amazing Historical site - A real feel of the middle ages!

  • The visit is just a little tour inside the barbacane but without any explanations. But it really doesn't cost much. (It's one of the museum available with the KrakowCard).
