Krakow's Wawel Royal Castle

   It is believed and confirmed by the archeological relics that the Wawel Hill was inhabited at least fifty thousand years ago, back in the Paleolithic Age. During the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, the area was busy with crafts, farming and trade.

   The first, Gothic Wawel Castle was built by Casimir III the Great and features numerous structures set around a central courtyard. During the fourteenth century that castle was rebuilt by Jadwiga of Poland and Jogaila. It was during their time that two towers were added - the Hen's Foot and the Danish Tower.

   At the turn of the last millennium, the Wawel Hill became place of residence of the Polish rulers. In the beginning of the sixteenth century, King Sigismund I the Old organized the most talented local artists, plus foreign architects and sculptures from Italy, decorators from Germany, etc. to build and arrange a Renaissance palace which is today known as the Wawel Royal Castle.

   The castle served as a model of the state residences all over the Central and the Eastern Europe. The Wawel Royal Castle features beautiful and very large courtyard with arcades, which was used as a setting for tournaments and court events of various nature. These special gatherings were watched by the royalty and their guests from the side of the galleries. Besides this huge courtyard, the Wawel Royal Castle featured state apartments on the top third floor of the palace, while the second palace contained the royal family private apartments. The court officials lived and worked on the ground floor.

   Today, the Wawel Royal Castle and its impressive courtyard are open for visitors who can see the marvelous furniture from that time and some world-famous art objects. Here are organized various exhibits as well. Travelers should know however that the entrance to the state and the royal apartments is not free of charge and an entrance fee is collected. Every day in the period April through September, the Wawel Hill is open to visitors from 6 o'clock in the morning until 8 o'clock in the evening, while in the period October - March, the hill is accessed only until 5 o'clock in the evening.

   Today in the Wawel Royal Castle could be enjoyed the following permanent exhibitions: the Royal Chambers with the tapestry collection and royal portraits, the Royal Private Apartments with the art and furniture from that period, the Crown Treasury Armory with the jewelry and the weapons, the Oriental Art with the Turkish weapons and the Chinese ceramics, The Lost Wawel architectural reserve and the big cave Dragon's Den.
