Castle
“Wawel Castle was a political and cultural heart of Poland through the 16th century. Now it's a museum with five separate sections: Crown Treasury and Armour, State Rooms, Royal Private Apartments, Lost Wawel and the Exhibition of Oriental Art. Each requires a separate ticket. Of the five, the State Rooms and Royal Private Apartments are the most impressive, but to be honest, the best part is just wandering around the castle grounds - open ^ am to dusk. ”
