A webcam online overlooking the Krakow Gate in Lublin, Poland. The Krakow Gate is a fortification built in the fourteenth century in the Gothic style under King Kazimir the Great. The Krakow Gate is located in the western part of the Old City in Lublin. Currently, the gate is an architectural and historical symbol of Lublin.

The Krakow Gate was built around the middle of the fourteenth century after the terrible invasion of the city by the Tatars in 1341. The gate was on the trade route from Krakow to Lithuania, so they got the name of Krakow. Initially, the gates were part of lublin's district defensive structures. The city was surrounded by a moat with water, the entrance was carried out with the help of a drawbridge.

Unlike the City Gate, located at the lower end of the city, the Krakow Gate served as the front entrance to the city for kings and nobles.

The oldest Gothic part of the gate was built of limestone and brick. In the fifteenth century the first reconstruction took place - a two-storey brick superstructure of thin brick with a diagonal pattern was created. In the sixteenth century, the Krakow Gate was twice the victim of fires. After the fire in 1575, an octagonal copper dome was built, topped with a tower.

In the evenings, city musicians began to gather at the gate, gradually, the square in front of the gate became the main commercial and social center of the city. In the seventeenth century, the Krakow Gate ceased to be used for its intended purpose, after which their condition gradually fell into disrepair. Due to the constant repair, as well as due to the limited financial resources of the city, in 1830 it was decided to demolish the gate. Fortunately, the project was never implemented.

In 1965, the Museum of the History of the City of Lublin was opened in the Krakow Gate, which tells about the life and development of the city from the 6th century until the end of World War II.
