"Wawel Royal Castle" Wawel Castle Tip by Dabs
Wawel Castle, Krakow: 172 reviews and 271 photos
We missed the official VT visit to Wawel and I hadn't really done much research so of course we headed over there to visit on Monday, the day we were leaving Krakow, and found that it was closed on Mondays. Not very good planning! But you can still walk the grounds of the Castle, visit the cathedral and check out the courtyard even on Mondays, there's no charge to wander the grounds or go inside the cathedral.
Poland was ruled from Wawel Hill and the various incarnations of castles and fortresses for over 500 years, Polish kings were crowned here and buried here, even after Warsaw became the capital. It's an impressive building, towering over the city, even if it seems to be a mish mash of styles.
If you do go, I've read that going early is best as it is possible for tickets to sell out. And I imagine it also beats the group tours.
