The Wawel Castle in Kraków was built at the behest of Casimir III the Great (the one you can see on our 50 pln note ), who reigned from 1333 to 1370, and consists of a number of structures situated around the central courtyard. For centuries it was the residence of the kings of Poland and the symbol of Polish statehood, the Castle is now one of the country’s premier art museums and now the whole November you can visit it for FREE!
If you can’t make it in November, don’t worry! The Castle offers free admission to selected exhibitions every Sunday, December through March and on Mondays from April to October. Children 7 and under always visit free.
