The Wawel is the city’s number one tourist attraction in Krakow and Europe's most spectacular medieval castle. Perched on top of the hill above the Vistula river, south of the Old Town , the Wawel is the crown jewel of the city's architectural treasures. It is by far the most important collection of buildings in Poland. Its historical and artistic value – dating from the 14th century – places it amongst the gems of the UNESCO World Heritage list . A vast complex of great halls, churches, state apartments and courtyards have their own stories to tell, the atmosphere and a world view of the imperial era. Strolling through the royal chambers , your expert guide will bring the castle to life by explaining the turbulent history surrounding the various buildings and their royal and presidential connections. A mandatory DRESS CODE has to be observed: No shorts, short skirts, flip flops and sleeveless shirts are allowed in the Cathedral. Visitors that are not properly dressed won't get access.
