The Royal Route, Wawel castle with highlights of Krakow
Krakow – previous capital of Poland, one of the most important cities in our country. Wawel hill is one of the most important places in Krakow. Wawel castle is the place, from where most of the polish Kings ruled our country. Nowadays most of them they were buried in the Cathedral. Krakow was lucky because it wasn’t destroyed during 2 World War.
I invite you to walk through the Old Town of Krakow, which due to the beauty of its architecture and unique history was one of the first to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
