Floriańska has always been considered one of the most important streets in Krakow. Going through it, it is worth looking at several tenement houses, for example Dom Jan Matejki, hotel "Pod Różą", cafe and cabaret "Jama Michalika". The street leads to the Main Market Square, it is topped with St. Mary's Basilica. The market square is one of the largest medieval squares in Europe, while in the Gothic basilica there is the work of Veit Stoss: a wooden altar from the 15th century. A bugle call is played every hour from the upper church tower. Almost in front of the facade of the church stands the monument of Adam Mickiewicz, made in 1898. It is a popular meeting point for both Cracovians and tourists.
The Central Market Place is occupied by the Sukiennice, a rare example of a medieval market hall that still serves commercial purposes. On the other hand, the tower towers, the only part of the now defunct city hall.
From the Market, the route leads past the church of St. Wojciech, originally built in the Romanesque style, through Grodzka street towards Wawel - one of the most magnificent Renaissance royal residences in Europe. Along the way, passing Dominikański and Wszystkich Świętych squares, you can admire the Gothic monastery complexes with the Dominican churches (in the cloisters, fragments of walls and Romanesque portal are preserved) and the Franciscans. In the latter one can admire polychromes and stained glass made according to the design of Stanisław Wyspiański. Next to it is the Wielopolski Palace, now the seat of the Krakow magistrate.
The prospect of Grodzka Street opens to the towers of the Romanesque church of St. Andrew from about 1100 and the baroque church of St. Peter and Paul, with characteristic statues of the apostles. Inside, there is the tomb of priest Piotr Skarga.
From the adjoining Grodzka St. square Mary Magdalene can be continued along Grodzka street, go past the Evangelical church of St. Marcin and the church of Saint. Idzi (from the 14th century) to the Arsenal, a building from the time of King Władysław IV. You can also turn into the picturesque Kanoniczą street, at the end of which stands the home of the royal chronicler Jan Długosz.
From this place there is a majestic view of the Wawel Hill, with the royal castle and the cathedral. The Gothic cathedral (in the basement there are two relics of the earlier buildings preserved) is a royal necropolis, but some national heroes, including T. Kościuszko and Marshal J. Piłsudski. Pope John Paul II was also associated with the temple - as the Metropolitan of Cracow and the host of the cathedral in the years 1967-1978. When visiting the cathedral, it is worth going to the tower where the bells hang, including the largest, weighing 8 tons, Zygmunt bell. It was cast in 1521 and bears the name of the founder - King Zygmunt I Stary. The bell rings only on the occasion of great ecclesiastical and state celebrations. The gem of the cathedral is the Renaissance chapel of Zygmunt - covered with a golden dome; erected in the first half of the 16th century, designed by Bartolomeo Berecci.
The Renaissance royal castle is famous for its arcaded courtyard and interior furnishings. Particularly characteristic is the Posel room, also known as Pod Głowami, because in the coffered ceiling once there were 194 carved wooden heads - only 30 have survived to their times. The royal chambers are decorated with a unique collection of 137 tapestries made in Flanders on the order of King Zygmunt II August. The collection is one of the most valuable exhibits of the Wawel castle. In a separate section, collections of eastern art are also presented, mainly from the times of the Polish-Turkish wars of the 16th and 17th centuries.
An additional attraction of Wawel is the cave under the limestone hill, called the Dragon Cave - according to legend, the dragon inhabited it. And from the Wawel Hill there is a picturesque view of the Vistula and the western part of the city.Get the full listing »
