Wawel Cathedral
The richest part of Wawel Hill, the Cathedral, is the most important cathedral in Poland and a real pearl among architectural masterpieces. Head inside with your guide and admire the beautiful interior, where Polish kings were coronated and buried. You’ll also see the famous Sigismund Bell in the tower, and many richly decorated chapels.  

State Rooms, Wawel Hill, and Courtyard
The Wawel Castle State Rooms were home to the most famous Polish kings, like Zygmunt III Waza and Wladyslaw Lokietek. Their interiors are full of ancient paintings and stunning tapestries, which have been preserved from the original decorations. You’ll also explore picturesque Wawel Hill and the courtyard surrounded by impressive defensive walls.
