  • Learn about 14th-century Poland with a guided tour of Wawel Royal Hill
  • Hear tales from Wawel Castle's long and fascinating history

Looking to get a feel for Polish heritage? Get medieval at one of Europe's most impressive castles, and hear stories dating back to the 14th century from a knowledgeable local guide.

As one of the most dazzling gems on the UNESCO World Heritage list, Wawel Castle has the wow factor. Looming over the Vistula River, the Wawel oozes medieval charm. Built at the command of King Casimir III the Great, who reigned from 1333 to 1370, its turbulent past makes for a tale or two!

With your local guide providing a fascinating snapshot of its history, and that of the surrounding area, you'll admire Krakow's number one tourist attraction from the outside, and get a glimpse of royal life in 14th-century Poland.

Having filled your brain with Polish history, you'll end your tour at the famous Wawel Dragon, armed with the knowledge needed to defeat this fire-breathing legend of Polish folklore!
