This cobblestone street is one of the paths from the castle into Old Town. It is lined with historic/old buildings and is almost like walking back in time. The horse drawn carriages seem to like to go down this street as it is less crowded with tourists and is a bit quieter. The Hotel Copernicus is also on this street.

Cool area in the Old Town. There you'll find the house where Pope John Paul II had lived, which makes this a very important and meaningful region for the local people.

This street's buildings date from the middle ages. Albeit rebuilt and renovated over the years, they are said to constitute an important grouping of buildings in the city.

One of the ancient streets in the Old Town - you should walk there while moving from Wawel Castle to the center.

Just walk on this street from the castle to the main square. The buildings are so beautiful (Pope John Paul II leaved on one of the houses), there are horse driven carriages, it is simply beautiful.
