    The Royal Way is a walkway that was previously used for royal processions and to this day is one of the best ways to see the big sights of the old city. Starting in the north you will see:
    St Florians Church
    The Barbakan
    St Florians Gate
    Rynek Glowny (Main Market Square)
    Cloth Hall
    Wawel Castle / Cathedral

    The walk at a slow pace would take around 40-50 minutes but naturally you will want longer for stopping at the sights, taking photos etc. It is all well sign posted as well but a very simple route in itself as it is essentially a straight line.

    We rented bikes at "Bike Trip" on Zwierzyniecka Street .near Debnicki Bridge. You begin with marvelous view of the Wawel Castle complex just to your east, and then head westward toward Tyniec. Except for one brief section when you pass through a small village you are on a dedicated bike path all the way to the Benedictine Abbey at Tyniec (about 10kms). En route you can glimpse numerous interesting landmarks including the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on a hill to the north, various fine homes and villas, an artificial river and rapids built for kayakers and of course much lovely flora. I have seen many stunning pictures of the Abbey but they all seem to be taken from up river and you will be approaching it from down river in Krakow. You can get the "beauty shot" by following a footpath a few hundred yards up river from the Abbey - definitely easier to walk than ride. There is a small area with vendors selling simple foods and beverages where the bike path ends below the abbey. We chose not to go inside the abbey although we did visit a cemetery up the hill and across the road from it. All in all it made for a very pleasant excursion and, as nice as Krakow is, it is nice to get away from the crowds for a few hours.

    Running roughly from the magnificent Wawel Castle to the evocative Jewish Quarter is the Saint Stanislaus Route.
    It's a very interesting walk that takes in the most popular tourist attractions such as the magnificent castle and leads you to Plac Wolnica which is a lovely square in the Jewish Quarter.
    If your a keen photographer don't forget the snapper as you will take some amazing photographs.
    I think to get the most out of this trail it would be good to download the route and take your time taking in all the sites along this interesting walk.
    Well worth checking out.
