In Krakow they survived other fragments of ancient fortifications.
On the eastern side of the Plant is visible portion of the gate Gródek Wojtowski (Rzeźnicza), incorporated in the subsequent development of the Dominican monastery at Gródku.
The oldest gate Krakow was defended by representatives of the guild of butchers of Kraków.
After 1312 years it has been cemented, and its function of communication took over a nearby gate Mikołajska.
