Old tow - Cracow Gate - the fourteenth-century gate guarding access to Lublin's Old Town, a historic symbol of the castle. The residue ramparts of the fourteenth century; built in the Gothic style, in the eighteenth century, it was given its baroque fig.
Lublin is the ninth largest city in Poland and the second largest city of Lesser Poland. It is the capital and the center of Lublin Voivodeship. Lublin is the largest Polish city east of the Vistula River, and is located approximately 170 kilometres to the southeast of Warsaw.
Lublin, until the partitions at the end of the 18th century, was a royal city of the Crown Kingdom of Poland. Its delegates and nobles had the right to participate in the Royal Election. In 1578 Lublin was chosen as the seat of the Crown Tribunal, the highest appeal court in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and for centuries the city has been flourishing as a centre of culture and higher learning, together with Kraków, Warsaw and Lviv.
Although Lublin was not spared from severe destruction during World War II, its picturesque and historical Old Town has been preserved. The district is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments.

Bonjour, cher Christophe,
Cette vue de la porte monumentale est superbe. Le cadrage retenu est excellent.
Une réalisation soignée.

You have chosen a very good, upwards viewpoint which accentuates the sense of strength and power from this mighty gate. It also, gives a nice composition, the gate showing its highest, strong point on the r/h thirds line.
Though it's a grey day, you have lost none of the building's colours.
Have a good day,

This gate is part of a strong defense structure.
What a huge tower. One could see the approaching people from far.
Presented from a very good angle.
Best regards, Paul

A beautiful example that it isn’t necessary to have a clear blue sky for the best pictures. A grey sky sometimes give equal attractive scene. You POV from below is another strong issue of the image.
Have a good weekend

Une très beau cadrage vertical et aussi une belle contre plongée qui donne une très belle ampleur à cette fortification qui semble en plein centre ville.

This is a very good photo of the impressive gate and tower. The sharpness and colours are superb and the dark clouds have a rather fine effect. They seem to fit this magnificent building well.

The point of view is showing the details of the gate and of the tower. It is clear and sharp. The cloudy sky is givng a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.

Impressive this old door of the city, which has three levels of height, the first two in brick and the last of masonry, which indicates that it is an added, hurt two posters placed just in front of the arch.
Very good work. I like it.
Good start to the week.
All the best, my friend.

What a lovely city gate, I like the vivid colors and the rich textures of the walls. The architectural style is pretty, too.
