More or less in the middle of Krakow, on the Vistula limestone hill, On the height 228 m n.p.m. the Wawel Hill rises. The most famous Polish building changes its face depending on the point, from which it is viewed, however, it looks equally impressive from all sides. The Royal Castle occupies the eastern part of the hill, which is best admired from ul. st. Giles: over the fortified wall rise menacingly high walls of the seat of kings with towers soaring into the sky: Danish and Zygmunt III, between which the picturesque Kurza Stopka leans out. North side, where the hill is steep and inaccessible, stands the Wawel Cathedral, which has the most picturesque view of the towers and chapels clustered side by side – including Zygmuntowska – can be contemplated from the side of the inner courtyard. Wawel looks the mildest from the south, from the side of the Vistula river bank, from where in the foreground you can see the former building of the Austrian hospital, enclosed by two towers: from the right - Sandomierska, from the left by Złodziejska; in the background there are high towers of the cathedral. The entire complex of the Wawel Hill is the most important and the most visited museum in the country, in which priceless mementoes of Polish rulers and works of art are collected. You need two or even three days to carefully see all the exhibitions and rooms. From morning to evening, crowds of visitors walk back and forth on the two roads leading to the Wawel Castle: from ul. Kanonicza and from St.. Giles. Had to ask them, where are they going, no one will say, that to the museum. They just go to Wawel, just like going to Mecca or Mount Everest.
