The cathedral on Wawel hill is a Polish national treasure.

To visit you have to purchase a ticket - and that is not in the same place as the ticket office for the castle is. You will find the cathedral ticket office next to the church itself.

With this ticket you can visit the cathedral, the Royal tombs in the Crypt and climb up the bell tower with both an impressive bell and a gorgeous view over Krakow.

Inside the cathedral there is so much to see: a fantastic altarpiece, various tombs and dozens of little chapels of which we liked the Holy Cross chapel best (please see the other pictures as well).

We obtained a very good guidebook just for the cathedral at the ticket office for 10 zl (March 2006).
