In my opinion even though there's plenty of beautiful streets in Krakow, this one is the nicest and the quietest - filled with beautiful architecture

Ulic Kanonicza is a nice street that leads you to the Wawel Castle,visited a while back. Horse drawn carriages use this street.

A wonderful place to see 14th-18th century buildings. Stroll through it and you will see the ages roll by. The name "kanonicza" is associated with clergy living there in Middle Ages and working for the Royal Castle.

OK, I get why people want to talk about Kanoniczka, since it is the street upon which John Paul II lived for a couple of decades before being elected pope. And the craze for the former pope/soon to be saint is in the extreme. But as a street, I find it on the one hand, mostly nondescript, and right now... More

The local inhabitants of Krakow are very proud that the the Pope lived in this road when he was Archbishop. It is an attractive street just off the Royal Route. We walked it many times on the way to the Castle and back and it made a change from the hustle and bustle of Grodzka. Worth walking down when exploring... More

Wonderful old Towne. A whole day to explore, go into churches, tour museums, have a scoop of lody, cup of white coffee, do a fair bit of shopping. It's a fun and interesting square even if all you wish to do is people watch :0)

We stayed on this street, at the Hotel Copernicus, and it really is the most charming quiet street in old Kraków. The Pope's home while bishop of Kraków is here as well and is excellent.
