awel - The Castle


June 30 - July 7, 2002

We spent a very pleasant day visiting the Wawel and its museums.  We started off in the National Cathedral with its tombs of ancient Polish Kings and impressive baroque interior and climbed to the famous Sigismund Bell. The place is so big that we had to come back another day to tour the former Royal Palace Apartments. And we missed entirely the Cathedral museum.
