Lesser Poland Voivodeship
Kanonicza street is Krakow's most picturesque, an mandatory element of any tourist route.
The paved Kanonicza street is faced with superb samples of Renaissance and Baroque architecture styles. Many of facades feature colourful murals and walkways leading to quiet courtyards.
- House 9 is the former residence of 18th century patriot Hugo Kollataj.
- Number 19 is home of the Archidiocesan Museum.
- At the very end, number 25, is the former royal bathhouse today known as Dom Dlugosza. Popular gossip tells that the future Queen Jadwiga, worried about rumours that Lithuanians had gigantic genitals, sent one of her servants to spy on the manhood of her future husband Lithuanian Grand Duke Jagiello. Her concerns appear to have been dispelled and the couple later got married.
At the end of the Kanonicza street you will face Wawel Hill which will be your final destination on the Royal Route.
