This famous tourist route is sprinkled with all kinds of historic and cultural landmarks, showing you the best of Krakow in one go. The main market square or ‘Rynek,’ is the largest medieval market square in Central Europe, lined with cafes and restaurants. Notice the Cloth Hall, the Polish Art Gallery, St. Mary’s Basilica, Town Hall Tower, and more before moving on to Wawel.

Follow the kings towards the All Saint's Square on your way to Wawel Hill.
