Kanonicza, Krakow
(4.3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
At , look for the two adjacent houses where John Paul II lived prior to becoming a pope. One of them, the chapter house, was turned into a museum that displays 13th-century paintings and other church art, as well as the pope's former room. The street used to be the final part of the royal road, the city's ceremonial route leading from the main city gate through the grand square to the royal castle. Most of the houses date from the 14th and 15th centuries, although they were Kanonicza is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Krakow Edition.

  • Cool area in the Old Town. There you'll find the house where Pope John Paul II had lived, which makes this a very important and meaningful region for the local people. 
  • This street's buildings date from the middle ages. Albeit rebuilt and renovated over the years, they are said to constitute an important grouping of buildings in the city. 
  • One of the ancient streets in the Old Town - you should walk there while moving from Wawel Castle to the center.
