Owner description: Serving as a royal residence and the site where the country's rulers governed Poland for five centuries (1038-1596), this castle is a symbol of the independent Polish state and today contains a priceless collection of 16th-century Flemish tapestries, considered to be one of the largest in the world.

The city is spotless and the castle does not fail to dissapoint following the same cleaness of the rest of the city.

To be honest, with all Krakow has to offer, I enjoyed looking at the castle from the areas which were free. If I'd have paid, I would spent a good part of the afternoon there & didn't want to do that.

If you have less time do not plan visit for different museum. They are time consuming and are not free. It is worth a visit and you require about two hours even without museum visits. Children will also enjoy the visit. Going up the tower is not essential
