  the old Kanonicza Street
by gosiaPL
 
 

This is one of Cracow's oldest streets with fine architecture. It used to be inhabited by canon law professors who in the 14th c. had their houses there (hence the name of the street: Kanonicza).
Of course they took all the measures to make their houses 'up to date' in those days, and that's how we can now admire true architectural treasures :-)

Walk along the street , check the lovely portals and peep into the courtyard of the Dean's House at no.21 (you can see it in my second General tip).

At the end of the street in this photo you can see a little bit of the Wawel Royal Complex.

Directions: Kanonicza St. goes south towards the Wawel. Easier to find if you start at the foot of the Wawel hill :-)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
