There was a religious holiday on Aug 15. It was a festival/jarmarka in Sandomierz. We were on our way to Krakow from Lublin and decided to take the Sandomierz route somewhere after 1/3 of the path. We were greatly surprised of the thousands of people...More

Characteristic of medieval cities there were usually two gate entrances through the walled city. Passing through them is like passing through time into an era hundreds of years ago.

The place worth the price - PLN 4.00 (PLN 3.00 with the discount) is the maxiumum one should pay for 'the view' it offers.

We went to Sandomierz because it was praised in our guidebook, without expecting much. But we immediately liked this old gate. Very high, higher than most town gates, I think. And behind it the old city centre, which is interesting and beautiful. Worth a detour!

More than one hundred steps just to admire the city from bird's eye view - yes, it's worth it. Some people may find they way up a bit tiring and the stairs steep but as they say 'there is no such thing as a free...More

You can physically go to the top of this gate but we decided to save our legs for the square walk instead. Many people dressed with various costumes greeted people ringing box for donations. Historic part of Sandomierz.
