  Wawel Hill, Krakow
by Paul2001

This hill that dominates the city of Krakow was from where the rulers of Poland governed for more that 500 years. It is amongst the most important attractions in all of Poland. The hill itself consists of one of the great cathedrals in Eastern Europe and a one of the most important castles in Poland.
The hill is extremely important to the national psyche of the Poles as it harkens back to a time when Poland was one of the most powerful countries in Central and Eastern Europe and not under the domination of foriegners. The historically importance and the brilliance of its cathedral make a visit to Wawel a true must see for anyone visiting Krakow.

Directions: Wawel Hill is located a short ten minute walk south from the Rynek Glowny.
