Architecture is all-pervading and is a brilliant amalgamation of fragments of the present and the golden past. The places that are a must visit here are Wawel royal castle,Rynek glowny, Wieliczka salt mine and the cloth hall. While the cityscape will strongly remind you of Budapest and a little bit of Prague, perhaps because of the essence of European cities.

In fact, at the Royal Wawel Castle, a 16th-century palace that is a national landmark for Poles, you'll see the old state rooms and private apartments of the Polish monarchy.
