According to travelers, the striking Wawel Cathedral is the unmistakable highlight of Wawel Hill and one of the top overall attractions in Kraków.
The main draw here is the burial chambers and tombs of famous historical figures in Polish history, including almost every Polish monarch that ever sat on the throne. You can walk from tomb to tomb, read the short bios that accompany them and get a nice lesson in Polish history in the process.
Admission is approximately $3 USD to enter the cathedral, which is open in the summer from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. In the winter, the cathedral closes an hour earlier.
