This is a place that can be seen on a Monday when the rest of the place is closed - it is beautifully surrounded by gorgeous gardens

This impressive, imposing cathedral is a must visit if you're in Krakow. The history within its walls alone makes it of great interest, the architecture is awe inspiring not to mention the fact that you can visit for free whilst your at Wawel. Very highly...More

Beautiful place but be watchful for the pigeons! Do not sit where there are trees so you don't get hit with pigeon poop. The grounds are beautiful and it is a good place to visit

This is the place filled with history. Definitely have a tour guide that will feed you with information... OK, this info is cool for someone that likes history (at least a bit). If you are not into past, ..... stay away....

Quite a nice place to visit the views are amazing. It was a really hot day when we visited but there were still places in the shade.

The cathedral is a juxtaposition of styles and building materials that could be horrible and instead melds fairly well. Still I would not call is beautiful. It is worth a visit for its cultural and historical significance. I would recommend paying for the audio guide.

This is one of the most important sights. It is very overrun by tourists. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Very historic place.
