Wawel – every Pole associates this word with Polish kings, national heroes and the legendary dragon living in a cave under the hill. The Wawel Hill is a place with over
a thousand years of history. It is said that the heart of Poland beats here.
The castle – the former seat of the Polish kings and the Wawel Cathedral – the place of their coronation and resting attract millions of tourists. The Wawel Royal Castle
is now a permanent exhibition of paintings, tapestries (mainly the most famous arrases of King Sigismund Augustus), treasures, militaria, archaeological relics and oriental objects. There are also interesting temporary exhibitions.
