A wonderful Cathedral and well worth a visit. The windows and interior are wonderful. When the hour strikes a trumpeter plays at each of the windows in the tower. 24 hours a day.

A tour well worth a visit, good history of krakow and previous kings/queens given. The tour also lets you go to the top of the bell tower where you will get a great view of the city.

Didn't have time to explore the interior of the castle but wandered round the grounds which were disappointing, although it was December. Wasn't really worth the effort just for the grounds.

Entry to the castle is free, but certain halls and rooms are chargeable. The church and courtyards and breathtaking, so don't rush yourself around.

We visited the castle and cathedral over the last weekend and was surprised to find that there was a lot you could see for free. We did not go into the cathedral but believe it was free. However, it was absolutely beautiful from the outside....More

I had read about the wawel dragon and just had to see the castle. Didn't go inside the cathedral since there so much see around Wawel Hill.
