This is said to be one of the prettiest streets in Europe. Its history dates back to the 14th century when the road connected an old hamlet known as Okol to Krakow. The cobbled pathway is known for the many beautiful Renaissance and Baroque buildings that rise on either side. Only one of these houses, the Dlugosz House (No. 25), survives from before the time the street was ravaged by fire in 1455. Originally the street was the home of noblemen, then the canons and prelates from the Wavel Cathedral moved into the houses. Each of the houses is notable in some way. Highlights of the street include:
- No. 1, Palace of Bishop Samuela Maciejowskiego
- No. 3, Lentil bursa
- No. 5, the Chapter House with a rich history of its own),
- No. 7, The Three Crowns, one of the oldest on the street),
- No. 17, Erazm Ciolek Palace, with a branch of the National Museum inside
- No. 18, Palace of the Bishop Florian Mokrsko, with a beautiful Renaissance portal
