Wawel Castlle on Wawel Hill in an amazing sight. Situated on top of the hill, next to the Vistula River in Krakow, the castle is a great place to visit if you are visiting the area. Many building sit on Wawel hill, including the castle, royal apartments, the cathedral, the royal tombs, and more. You will also find the visitor's center where you can buy your tickets, use the restroom and purchase souvenirs at the gift shop. They do offer a few days with free admission each year, and we were fortunate enough to be in Krakow on one of those days. Even if it's not free, the exhibits make purchasing tickets worth while. They don't allow photos inside the buildings, so make sure to take time to look around and remember the amazing items on display.
