Impressive building located in the wawel castle grounds. Immaculately restored and clean with plenty of guides to assist you in the area. Well worth a photo moment

I don't generally review tourist attractions, but I thought I'd put a word in for Wawel Cathedral because it exceeded my expectations. A ticket for the Cathedral is only 12 PLN (around 3 euros) and gives you access to the cathedral, Royal Tombs, Cathedral Museum and Bell. The thing I loved about all the exhibits is that there is an English translation under all signs. The whole visit gives you a great insight into Poland's religious and political history - in particular, their Kings and Queens. Highly recommend a visit if you're interested in history, pretty artifacts and elaborately-decorated churches!

Great cathedral, free entry and a good mix of architectural styles. Certainly one of the more interested cathedrals visited on this trip.
