Wawel Royal Castle

Krakow, Poland
4.8 / 5
The residence of the 13th century Polish kings, located on the banks of the Vistula River. The construction began to be erected under Wenceslas II and continued under Casimir III the Great. During the Northern War, the castle was burned by Swedish troops, after which it was reconstructed in 1724-28. For a long time, the Wawel Castle belonged to the Austrian Empire, and only at the beginning of the XX century the Poles managed to buy it back.
