Paid for the tour at the cathedral and was simply blown away with the history and the architecture as well as the artistry. It’s a go at your own pace with the headphones. We learned a lot!

the Audio tour is a must; both the inside and outside are worth a visit. I did not love the Lost Wawel Exhibit...but loved the State Rooms..all other parts were closed as it was a holiday week

This among the most beautiful churches I have ever seen, comparable in beauty (rather than scale) to the Vatican. Testimony to Polands proud heritage, photos do not do it justice. Simply stunning interior. Well worth a visit.

Highs: the bell tower was really cool and felt like a really unique experience. Lows: the tombs and catacombs were overcrowded and honestly boring.

The cathedral is a must see as it has multiple types of structures being built on top of one another due to the different monarchs. Inside the cathedral houses the remains of royalty as well as big bones of a bygone era. Difficult to describe...More

Take just a short walk from Krakow's main square and you will find Wawel Castle and Wawel Cathedral. Inside, you'll see a multitude of side chapels. Outside, an unusual amalgamation of architectural styles that draw the eye. We enjoyed the outside even more than the...More
