The Royal Road is a picturesque route leading along some of the most famous streets and passing some of the most prominent tenement houses of the historic centre of Krakow. The route beginning at St. Florian’s Gate continues across the Main Square to end at the foot of the Wawel complex. It is a must-see for all tourists visiting the former capital of Poland. The city tour begins on the Main Square, at the exit of Grodzka street. The tourists will meet there by the small Church of St. Wojciech that traces its history to the pre-Romanesque period. A leisury walk down the route of the centuries-old architecture of Krakow leads to the legends surrounding the Main Square, the Cloth Hall and the famous St. Mary’s Basilica with the distinctive two towers. The trip along the Royal Road will end at the foot of the Wawel Castle – the residence of the kings of Poland in the days of greatest glory until the 17th century.
