Wawel Castle

Listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, The Wawel Castle, an iconic monument of national importance, stands above the Old Town. The castle, which served as the seat of the King of Poland from the 13th to 17th century, was built with styles of architecture, from Romanesque to Baroque.

The castle was damaged in the 1650s by the Swedish invasion, after the capital had been moved to Warsaw. It was afterwards converted to a national museum in the 1940s, displaying the riches and treasures of the Polish monarchy.

From cellars with Gothic vaults, to atmospheric squares, churches, lovely bakeries, cafes and the former town hall. The Old Town offers unique sights and sounds of the city and a whole different perspective.

Kościuszko Mound

Interred beneath this 34-metre-high mound is the body of the Polish national hero, Tadeusz Kościuszko who led an insurrection against Russia in 1794. His resistance efforts began in Kraków’s Main Square, and after he died his body was buried in the style of Poland’s ancient rulers. 

The mound which was completed in 1823, sits at the top of Sikornik hill, 326 metres above sea level.

Visitors can climb a winding path up the mound, entry which is through the Neo-Gothic Blessed Bronisława chapel.
