About

Cracow Gate (Brama Krakowska) was built as a part of a fortification systems (the walls surrounding the city) during the reign of King Casimir the Great, following a Tatar attack in 1342. It is an architectural symbol of the city and serves as a passage between the Old Town and the Downtown. The present appearance of the Gate combines features of a number of architectural styles. The oldest part of the Gate (Gothic style) was built using limestone and bricks arranged in a checker pattern on the outside walls. In order to increase the defensive capabilities of the Gate, in the first half of the 16th century it was extended with a fore-gate with steepled crenels. A drawbridge stretching over a moat, from Lokietek Square, was also used for defensive purposes. The Baroque cupola with a monogram "SAR" (Stanislaus Augustus Rex) and a date-1782-shows the next stage of the Gate extension, supervised by Dominik Merlini, the architect in ordinary to Stanislaw II August Poniatowski, King of Poland. Throughout the centuries, the Cracow Gate has served a number of purposed: defensive, residential and commercial. The Gate had a clock and a trumpeter would play the bugle call every hour from the balcony and give performances. The clock was first mentioned in 1557, and in 1585 the citizens sponsored a clock bell cast by Alojzy Stanifusor. The bell had a fragment of a Psalm, three medallions and the Coat of Arms of Lublin carved on its surface. The facade of the Cracow Gate from the Old Town has a picture of St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of the city, and the fore-gate is decorated with an image of the Immaculate Conception painted by Janusz Swiezy, which can be seen over the entrance to the gate.
