Sehr angenehme Audioguide Führung. Angenehme Stimme des Sprechers. Man bekommt Lust noch mehr anzusehen. Es ist ein guter Überblick über die Burg und ihre Geschichte. Auch die kleinen Anekdoten sind gut in den informativen Zusammenhang eingeflochten.Es hat Spass gemacht mit dem Audioguide die Burg kennenzulernen

We picked our headsets and audio device from the shop next to the church, the lady wasn't very informative, but we managed to do the experience with a few little hiccups. Overall the audio guide was very informative and had a good experience. My only disappointment was we never saw the armoury or the treasury room, I thought this was included, but it was all payable separate. Which was a bit of a let down for me.

A must do visit, led by a very genuine guide. It was well organised, structured and communicated.

A castle that served as the abode of Poland’s kings for centuries, the castle on Wawel Hill is amongst the most treasured heritage sites in the country. The castle is divided into several chambers including the State Rooms, ‘The Lost Wawel’ exhibition, the oriental art exhibition, the Royal Gardens, and Dragon’s Den. It also houses an impressive array of artistic masterpieces at an art museum within its walls. These include several Italian Renaissance paintings, sculptures, textiles, furniture, and armor sets from the medieval age.

Originating in Polish mythology, the Wawel Dragon or Smok Wawelski is an especially popular sight on Wawel Royal Hill. You can see the dragon depicted as a massive fire-breathing metal statue in front of one of the several limestone caves that dot the hill. Soak in brilliant panoramic views of Cracow and the Tatra Mountains before ending your tour.
