Rising from the plain by the Vistula River, Wawel Hill was the location of Krakow’s earliest settlement dating back to the prehistoric era. According to legends, it is said that a dragon dwelt in a cave beneath Wavel, adding to the lure of this impressive location. The Wavel Castle is another imposing structure that is artfully adorned with fine art, tapestries, and antiques. Being the home of Polish kings and housing the cathedral where they were crowned and buried, Wavel Hill is a truly historic location.
The Czartoryski collection was initiated in 1795 by Princess Izabela Czartoryska to preserve the celebrated Polish heritage. The museum houses bejeweled Turkish shields, miniature amber altarpieces from Gdansk, a mural from Seti I’s tomb and of course, the key exhibit: Leonardo da Vinci’s “Lady With An Ermine”. From extensive collections of armors and ancient treasures to ornate ceramics and elaborate carpets, Czartoryski Museum offers a glimpse into the richness and heritage of Poland’s illustrious past.
Just 50 kilometers to the west of Krakow lies the town of Oswiecim, a site which housed a Nazi concentration camp. Since the end of the war, the site has been preserved as a memorial and museum and receives more than a million visitors each year. A visit to Auschwitz offers a glimpse into the world war history and will certainly be a hugely moving experience.
St. Mary’s Altar
St. Mary’s Church boasts of a magnificently opulent interior and the highlight of this church is the 42 foot high altarpiece by Veit Stoss. This 15th century monument is the largest Gothic sculpture in the world and artfully arranged as a triptych, it tells an impressive story of the life of the Virgin Mary. The beautifully carved out figures are remarkably realistic and the glittering lights reflected by the stained glass windows wraps up the dramatic effect of this church.
Situated at the heart of the Old Town, Rynek Glowny is a gargantuan medieval market square that bursts with life and still functions as the city’s social hub. The lively atmosphere, the many café terraces that fringes market square and the appealing hodgepodge of architectural styles is a treat for any tourist.
Kazimierz and the Galicia Jewish Museum
Kazimierz was once Krakow’s lively Jewish quarter before the World War II changed everything. But in recent times, the long-neglected and dilapidated buildings have been restored and returned to their former glory. The Galicia Jewish Museum showcases some of the emotionally touching memorials and photographs to a vanished community that include ruined synagogues, haunting pictures of derelict cemeteries and extermination camps throughout the southern parts of Poland.
Located at the furthest part of the Old Town and at the passé end of Kazimierez, this splendid museum is rarely crowded as it should be. Housed in Kazimierz’s former town hall, the Ethnographical Museum is an imposing 14th century building that boasts of an exceptional Renaissance façade. The museum showcases colorful regional costumes, folk and religious paintings, festival masks, pottery, amazing nativity scenes and giant recreations of the 19th century pheasant cottage interior from around Poland that are particularly fascinating.
Wieliczka Salt Mine
A true tribute to human endeavors, the Wieliczka salt mine is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the only mining site in the world that has been running ever since the Middle Ages. A peculiar world of pits and chambers, Wieliczka has massive salt deposits that were formed some twenty million years ago and a tour to the salt mine includes a plethora of wonders- the crystal caverns with glistening walls of natural crystal formations, a maze of tunnels, underground lakes, St.Kinga’s chapel- the most opulent underground church in the world- and elegant sculptures carved by hand out of rock salt are all treasures worth beholding.
Located in the Jagiellionian University, the Botanical Gardens is the oldest botanical gardens on Poland. The breathtaking gardens offer ten hectares of lush greenery and beautiful blooms. The Botanical Gardens is home to numerous greenhouses as well as enthralling exhibits of tropical crop pants, endangered species of Polish flora, biblical flora, an orchid collection that dates back to the 1860s, mountain plants, carnivores plants and Poland’s oldest collection of cycads. A large part of the garden is taken up by an arboretum that houses an impressive collection of over 1000 species of trees, bushes and shrubs.
Basilica of St Francis
The basilica of St Francis is a great place to admire the artistry of Stanis?aw Wyspia?ski, the man who designed the Art Nouveau stained glass windows. Above the organ loft is the impressive masterpiece- the multi-coloured deity. Visitors can also enter the Gothic cloister of the Franciscan Monastery to admire the remains of frescoes dating back to the 15th century.
