Some of Wawel Hill's oldest stone buildings date back to 10th century. Until 1611 Wawel was the formal seat of Polish monarchy. It was the place of royal coronations, weddings and funerals. In a cave at the foot of the hill, on the bank of the Vistula River, the Wawel Dragon had his lair. Nowadays it is a popular stop for tourists.
Discover Kazimierz is a former Jewish district. From the 14th until the 19th century, Kazimierz was an independent town – a place of coexistence of Christian and Jewish cultures, separated from Krakow by the branch of the Vistula river. Today it is the cultural center of the city and a favorite among young people to hang out and relax. Also explore and learn about the famous former enamel factory of Oskar Schindler.
