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.

All coronations were taking place at Wawel Castle even when they removed the capital from Cracow to Warsaw (it was in 1596).

Beautiful Kraków castle settled by Polish kings for centuries. Situated in beautiful, scenical surrounding - the Vistula Boulevards.

“ One of several such interesting places in Krakow, in the Sukiennice you can find a dozen or so shops with souvenirs and other interesting items. I have been to the Krakow market several times and always went to the cloth hall and then to the monument of Adam Mickiewicz and St. Mary's Basilica.”

History Museum
“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.”
