Krakow - Wawel Sightseeing of the Royal Hill

Visiting Cracow and not passing by the Wawel Castle is just like visiting Paris and missing the Eiffel Tower. We encourage you to see the Wawel and have a guided trip to one of the most important hills in Poland – the Wawel Royal Hill. This was where Polish kings and queens reigned over Poland and the very secrets of their life could suffice to be the theme of several tours. We are going to share the most significant of those secrets and show you the most important places within the Wawel Hill, and finally leave you with the Wawel Dragon, telling you in advance how to defeat it. See you in Wawel!

    Stop At: Wawel Royal Castle, Wawel 5, Krakow 31-001 Poland

    The meeting with the tour guide is planned at ul. Kanonicza 11, in an originally preserved Medieval basement that would be a nice introduction to Medieval Cracow and to the focal point of our trip. We are going to pass by the most expensive hotel in Cracow – the place which hosted e.g. HRH Prince Charles or President Bush. We are then going to stop by the house of Jan Długosz – the legendary Polish historian, from where we would have a magnificent view over the panorama of the Wawel Hill. We are going to go uphill, pass through the Arms Gate, stop by the monument of Tadeusz Kościuszko (one of the most important Polish heroes) and later – pass by the entrance to the Wawel Cathedral. The secrets of Polish kings and governors of the Wawel Castle (including e.g. Hans Frank during the Second World War) will be revealed in a place where they resided and governed – that is, in the arcaded courtyard with its numerous monuments originating from Renaissance. This is where you could experience the legendary Wawel chakra – you will be shown the exact spot, although at your own risk. We are then going to continue in the direction of the Crypt of the Silver Bells, which is the burial place for President Lech Kaczynski and his spouse and further to the Austrian Hospital from where you would be able to see a beautiful panorama of Cracow, and if you are lucky enough to have clear sky – you could even see the Tatra Mountains. We are going then to pass by Sandomierska Tower and go downhill through the Bernardyńska Gate straight into the arms of the Wawel Dragon and his cave, which, throughout the ages functioned as a meeting spot. Wawel is a place with a lot of interesting stories, thus you are invited for a trip whose cost is just the same as the price for a cinema ticket!
