Visit St. Mary's Church where the true gem of Krakow can be found, a Gothic wooden altar, a 15th century altar associated with an unsettled history.
The charming historical streets take you up a gentle slope to the Wawel Castle and the Royal Basilica where the most prominent Polish figures are buried.

One more legend awaits you as you confront a fire-breathing dragon.
