The cathedral in Wawel Castle is beautiful. Had tickets to see the cathedral, the tombs, and the bell tower. Cost of 20 zloty per person (roughly $5 USD). Well worth the time to go through. This cathedral is not like other cathedrals in Europe as...More

What a beautiful Castle and grounds. We only walked around outside the day we were there, as it was a beautiful sunny day and tremendously crowded. We even saw a bridal couple taking photographs on the grounds. After we spent some time outside we ventured...More

Never went inside. But it was sure a great cathedral only for the royal family back then. Lovely area, nice hill.

This is an incredible cathedral with a rich and interesting history. Take the time to go to mass here (even if you aren't Catholic) while you are iin Krakow.

Castle on a hill with Cathedral and palaces. You have to pay to enter museums inside the castle. Museums close at 5 pm.

Walking up the road leading into Wawel, you get the sense of the power that rested here for so long. Site of the Polish Kings for hundreds of years, you can tour their private apartments, see the treasury, and walk through the amazing armory. The...More

This is a classic Catholic Cathdral , s8milar to many across the world. It is modest in size as was built only for the nobility to use. Worth a visit. Apparently the Wawel Castle is full of non original items from across the world so...More
