SIGHTSEEING IN KRAKOW - part three 🇵🇱 Important to mention, is that it isn’t just about what’s outside the city as recommendations for you to see in Krakow.
The city has many beautiful buildings and points of interest which are worth a visit during your stay.
For example, a walk to Wavel Castle on a sunny morning, cold or warm, is a nightlight. We chose not to pay the entrance fee to see inside, but enjoyed the grounds free of charge none the less, with a beautiful snapshot of the river to be seen at the back of the grounds from where you enter. With well kept gardens, stone terraces to sit out on and enjoy a coffee and plenty of photograph opportunities, it’s one not to be missed of the list of places to be see!
And if you so wish, on exiting the castle, you can choose to pay a small fee of 3 zloty to exit via Dragons Den, which is a small set of winding stairs, easily found by the blue ticket machine next door, which leads you through a small historic cave which is alleged to once have been home to a mythical dragon 🐉
Upon exiting, a metal structure of said creature can be seen to the left too, which even breathes fire at times during the day, which we happened to see whilst passing one evening and was a lovely surprise, ticking the child within me!
And if you find yourself hungry on route to or from, we would definitely recommend a visit to @cupcakecornerbakery, where you can purchase a warm bagel filled with cream cheese or a piece of raspberry blondie (sort of brownie), to cure those grumbling tummies!
Furthermore, wandering around the city by foot is certainly a way to get the most of the city and what is has to offer. Other notable parts of the city that may interest you, include Kazimierz (Jewish quarter) and the Old Town square, both of which offer different experiences of restaurants, sights and smells.
