Step into history with a guided tour of the former residence of Polish kings and a symbol of statehood, Wawel Castle. Discover the castle, which became a museum in 1930, and hosts a vast collection of paintings, graphics, sculptures, fabrics, goldsmiths, military items, porcelain, and furniture. See inside the chambers that display the famous tapestries of Zygmunt August and the magnificent renaissance Italian paintings from the Lanckoronski collection. Explore the Wawel collections of eastern art, one of the largest and most important collections of tents in Europe.

We booked the tour only about 3 hours before it started. The guide was good, you'd think it would have been the first time since he was so eager to tell about the castle and the cathedral. It was worth buying a tour, you never had to wait in line for tickets on the spot. The round included a 20m break, which was necessary
