Recommended duration
2 hours

One of Wawel's two artillery towers, Sandomierska Tower was built around 1460 to defend the castle against attack from the south.

A small chamber on the third floor would have served as either a guard's lodging or a prison for nobles, whereas common criminals were held in the dungeons.

Recently opened to tourists, climb the 137 winding steps for great photo opportunities, particularly of the castle courtyard and Cathedral.

Impressive fortifications located in kraków - a visit is definitely a must when visiting Krakow.
In the medieval Cracow, the Wawel castle by the way was limited from all sides by the Vistula river.

Beeindruckende Befestigungsanlagen mitten in Krakau - ein Besuch ist definitiv ein muss, wenn man Krakau besichtigt.
Im mittelalterlichen Krakau war der Wawel ubrigens noch von alles Seiten durch die Weichsel begrenzt.

Medieval castle which is in great condition. It was almost burnt to the ground by King Sigismund. Which is why he moved the capital to Warsaw after he was conducting experiments in his alchemy lab.
