Royal Road

The Royal Road in Cracow begins at the northern end of the medieval Old Town and continues south through the centre of town, the Main Market Square, towards the Wawel Hill, where the old kings' residence, the Wawel Castle, is located.

The Royal Road passes some of the most prominent historic landmarks of Poland's royal capital, providing suitable background to coronation processions and parades, the kings' and princes' receptions, foreign envoys and guests of distinction traveling from a far country to their destination at Wawel.

The tour covers : St. Florian's Church, containing the relics of St. Florian — the Patron Saint of Poland, where the Royal Road starts; Matejko Square with the monument commemorating the king Władysław Jagiello; the medieval fortifications featuring the 15th century Barbican (one of only three such fortified outposts still surviving in Europe) and the famous Floriańska Gate - the original entrance to the city; a walk around the Main Square, the largest market square in Europe; a visit to St. Mary's Basilica, home of the spectacular Gothic altarpiece sculpted by Vit Stwosz in the XV century; the Wawel Hill with its splendid architectural complexity including, among other historic buildings, the Wawel Castle and the Cathedral. The tour finishes with the visit to the Royal Cathedral.
