WHY THE ROYAL ROUTE AND THE OLD TOWN?
The Old Town is a magical place. For many centuries, kings, queens, and their guests came to Kraków through St. Florian's Gate, past the main market square, and continued along Grodzka Street to the Wawel Castle. Today the Royal Route is still as vibrant and lively as ever, retaining its royal splendor. Here you'll find perfectly preserved medieval architectural structures, some of the most magnificent in Europe, including beautiful residences, centuries-old churches, majestic university buildings, and a renaissance castle and gardens at Wawel Hill.
The main market square is the heart of the city, designed eight centuries ago to meet the needs of merchants. Today the taverns and inns surrounding the center have been replaced by restaurants, clubs, and coffee shops. The Cloth Hall dominates the middle of the square, and features stalls with local souvenirs, works of art, and jewellery.
The Old Town is full of local pubs and eateries serving high quality food and drinks. There are almost six-thousand historic sites to admire while you explore this unique neighborhood.
