Wawel 5, 31-001 Kraków, Poland
A little touristy and every attraction/part of the castle has a separate ticket but still a breath taking place to visit. It’s a historical place with a lot of charming architecture. You can go down a cave with a dragon at the end - spoiler alert - the dragon breaths fire every few minutes!
Great place to know the story of Poland from the very beginning. You have many exhibitions inside and my favourite one is the treasury and army area. The one that I would say it's less recommended it would be the cave, as you have to pay on the entrance and it's really small.
Such an amazing kings residence! Gorgeous architecture, lovely nature, adorable place! You can feel the greatness of its previous times with every cell of your body. Walking there is breathtaking and absolutely unforgettable!
The castle occupies a huge profile on an elevated position in Kracow. Beautiful castle, additions and improvements built and rebuilt over hundreds of years, and showing the changes in architectural styles and tastes throughout the ages. From the castle there are great views around the city. Inside the castle there are stunning state rooms, furnished with antiques, tapestries, wall coverings, beautiful floors, ornate ceilings. All absolutely breathtaking, and providing an insight into days gone by. Hugely recommend.
Very nice people selling the tickets. The castle has a free access area (which includes the Cathedral but not some exhibits inside it) and then for some exhibits you need to purchase a ticket. I visited most of the exhibits and it took me pretty much the whole day, especially considering that some places close at 5pm or earlier depending on the time of year. Everyone in the staff was very nice and helpful. The only issues I encountered were not being able to purchase a drink to go on one of the restaurants, and while the other had drinks to go they only accepted cash, which I did not have with me at the time (only card).
