"Katedra Wawelska" Wawel Cathedral Tip by Umea6
Wawel Cathedral, Krakow: 92 reviews and 159 photos
This cathedral is the coronation site and burial place of almost all of Poland’s monarchs. It was built in the early 11th century by King Boleslaw the Brave after Krakow was made a bishopric. Although there are Romanesque elements, the overall impact is determined by the 14th-century Gothic structure. Of the many royal chapels, the Renaissance Chapel of King Zygmunt (Sigismund) stands out. It is possible to climb the tower to see the 11-tonne Zygmunt Bell.
Address: Wawel 3
