History museums

Castle
“The castle together with the Wawel Cathedral are one of the most important monuments in Krakow. It's worth visiting their interiors, but if you don't have enough time to see the inside of the castle, I recommend you to see the castle's courtyard and the Wawel Cathedral.

“Cracow's Main Square is an unusual place. Delineated in the middle of the XIII century, it became the principal public area of the city. Unchanged through centuries, today it is the heart of Cracow. But in order to see how it looked like in the late Middle Ages, in the time when Mikolaj Kopernik was walking about - one needs to go underground.”

“Known for their enormous schnitzel pork chops (seriously, just split one), daily promotions (including 1-litre beers for only 7.50zł on Mondays!) and complimentary cherry vodka shots with the check, this restaurant has been a rampant success in one of the most high-rent locales in the country. Less beer-hally than its sister establishment Pod Wawelem, enjoy outdoor seating in the shadow of the Town Hall Tower in warm weather, or the surprisingly intimate Austro-Hungary-inspired interior inside the Cloth Hall, all while stuffing yourself silly on local specialties at some of the lowest prices on the market square. The fact that it isn't a shameless tourist trap, makes it even more of a tourist magnet.”
