Full description
After convenient pickup from your accommodation in Krakow, head straight for one of the most stunning medieval castles in Europe, Wawel Royal Castle on Wawel Hill. Built between the 13th and 14th centuries, the castle displays nearly all notable European architectural styles of the era, from medieval, to renaissance and baroque. Gaze at the ornate copper spires and massive stone turrets, all surrounding an Italian-style courtyard.

With your expert, English-speaking guide to inform you of all the fascinating details of the structures, marvel at the Royal Private Apartments, with their glistening marble floors and gilded ceilings. As you walk, you’ll even hear of the legend of the Wawel Dragon, and to cap things off, snack on an obwarzanek, a beloved Krakow-style pretzel. After you’ve taken in the splendor of the area, you’ll be driven back to your accommodation in Krakow.
