The Wawel is the city’s number one tourist attraction and Europe's most spectacular medieval castle. The monument simply cannot be overlooked in Cracow. Do not miss the chance to see the origin of residency of Polish kings.
Perched on top of the hill above the Vistula river, south of the Old Town, the Wawel is the crown jewel of the city's architectural treasures. It is by far the most important collection of buildings in Poland. Its historical and artistic value - dating from the 14th century - places it amongst the gems of the UNESCO World Heritage list. A vast complex of great halls, churches, state apartments and courtyards have their own stories to tell, the atmosphere and a world view of the imperial era. Strolling through the royal chambers, our expert guide will bring the castle to life by explaining the turbulent history surrounding the various buildings and their royal and presidential connections.
Given the religious character of the Wawel Cathedral please dress respectably: cover your shoulders and knees. Those not dressed appropriately might not be admitted to enter.
