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 lunch'.

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.

I came here in mid-July 2015 but the gaTE MUST STILL STAND.We drove here from tarnobrzeg and parked just outside the Old Town, in the shadow of this fine gate. It is most imposing and a very fitting entrance to one of the loveliest towns in Poland. Dating from 14th century, it is full of history.

Viewing deck was closed when I was in Sandomierz so for me, it was just an architecturally nice gate, but I'm sure the views are spectacular from the top.

It doesn't cost that much for a ticket. There are some lovely view once you get to the top and each floor has different temporary exhibitions. However, the steps up can be quite difficult for some people who may not be good with heights and impossible for anyone who finds it difficult to walk. There is no elevator for anyone... More

Built in the 14th Century, climb it if you feel fit. Great views of the town and area from the top, a little windy up there. In 2015 a Polish detective film was made in the town and pictures are here taken during the filming.

The entrance fee is rather small and totally worthy the views. Indoors there was an exhibition of photos of the city plus from the set of "Ojciec Mateusz" series which takes place in Sandomierz.
