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.

The street is one of the oldest in Krakow and it us in a very good shape of history. There are many old and beautiful buildings so you must visit the street just for a short walk.

This cobblestone street in Krakow's Old Town is the center of the city's Catholic clergy. It has the Bishop Erazm Ciolek's Palace, the Archdiocesan Museum, the John Paul II Center, and pretty baroque townhouses owned by the Catholic Church.

This street takes you from the main square down to the castle. It has many old houses with lovely architecture. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants, and it is a popular route for the horse carriages.

Lovely cobbled street in a city center full of Reinassance houses. The best time to stoll is early morning when there are no tourists and the steet is quiet and peaceful. To feel its magic better come in the evening. The houses are nicely illuminated - they look really impressive. It is the best way to reach Wawel Castle and... More
