Lublin – the Cracow Gate

Vg6ybH0y5M3NfJ2SXSPC64JN

This card was sent to me by my pen pal Agnieszka. It shows the Cracow Gate and (on the smaller pictures) the Klonowica Tenement and the arch-cathedral.

The Cracow Gate is the most well-known monument of Lublin and an architectural symbol of the city. It serves as a passage between the Old Town and the Downtown. At present, it serves as a Lublin History Museum. The name of the Gate derives from a royal road running from Lublin to the then capital of Poland – Cracow. The road would run through that Gate.  The Cracow Gate was considered the most elegant element of the Old Town, therefore, royal and parliamentary entourage would enter the city through this Gate.
