Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
