What travelers are saying
- Droga Krolewska ( Royal Way ) is not a street as some reviewers believe but a route that roughly starts from the magnificent St Florians Church and meanders up to Wawel Castle/ Cathedral, along Royal Way you will pass many of the emblematic structures of the city such as St Florians Gate, Barbican, Sukiennice, St Mary's Basilica, Town Hall Tower and of course the famous castle and cathedral, as you would expect there's innumerable pubs,bars, cafe's and restaurants plus fast food restaurants, its just an amazing and very historic walk to partake of if you're planning a holiday to Krakow.Written February 15, 2024This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Saint Stanislaus Route is a wonderful walk that is a must go for devotees of the cult of St Stanislaus .
St Stanislaus ,the Bishop of Krakow was martyred at the bequest of King Boreshaw The Bold ,the route starts at the stunning Wawel Castle/ Cathedral and meanders along the banks of the Vistula River were he was murdered and on and into the Kazimierz district into Plac Wolnica taking in many sites associated with the saint,well worth checking out if you're planning a holiday to Krakow.Written February 15, 2024This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- 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.Written October 1, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
