Great old street

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

If you want to taste the medieval Cracow you must go to Kanonicz str. over the evening. Priceless. Almost all of the town houses belong to church.

Quaint, ancient street that is nice to walk through and admire the architecture, but not much else to do.

These streets were undoubtedly one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. The whole place is beautifully aligned with renaissance styled houses in bright colours. The best part is that the whole place is still bathed in the old world style and is extremely peaceful and impressive. You could utilize these calm and relaxed areas to reach the... More

It makes a lovely change to walk down a street in the old town where you don't get pestered for city sightseeing tours or menus shoved in your hands. Full of very old beautiful houses, some of the oldest in the city, and that of John Paul II. Take a stroll down it on the way to the castle.
