Wawel Royal Castle, the Pride of Krakow

The Wawel Royal Castle is a must-visit destination for history buffs in Krakow. The Wawel Castle served as the residence for Polish kings and queens since the 14th century and now hosts several important artifacts and artworks. You must tour its many rooms, including the Royal Apartments, the Armoury, the Sigismund Bell room, and the Crown Treasury. The Wawel Cathedral is located on the castle grounds and was used to host royal coronations and ceremonies. You can also catch glimpses of the famous Vistula River from the Royal Wawel Castle. 

The legend of the Wawel Dragon adds to the charm of the Castle and makes it an even more interesting destination for tourists. Read on to know more about Wawel Royal Castle, how to book Wawel Castle tickets, its opening hours, and other information to plan your visit. 

From Medieval Legend to Modern Icon, the Wawel Castle Dragon

One of the most famous legends associated with the Wawel Castle is that of the Smok Wawelski or the Wawel dragon. According to local sources, the Wawel dragon once lived beneath the castle and terrorized the people in King Krak’s city. The dragon agreed not to attack the city on one condition, that they would have to provide it with a steady supply of meat. 

No knight had been successful in killing the dragon until a shoemaker named Skuba used his wit to vanquish the hellspawn. He stuffed a ram’s hide with sulfur and pitch and presented it to the dragon. Once it devoured the doctored ram, it felt a burning sensation in its throat. He drank the water from the Vistula River nearby and the water reacted with the sulfur, making the beast explode. 

In the present day, you can walk down to the limestone formations beneath the castle and look at Smok’s bones hung proudly outside the Wawel Cathedral. You can also spot a bronze statue of the Smok Wawelski right outside the Castle walls.
