The Wawel Cathedral of Sts. Stanislaus and Vaclav is the sanctuary of Poland’s patron – the bishop St. Stanislaus. Here the kings of Poland were crowned and buried along with the national heroes and poets.
The majestic cathedral dates back to the 11th century. Today it carries traces of various styles and is surrounded by 18 chapels. The most magnificent is the Sigismund’s Chapel, covered with a gilded dome, which became the mausoleum of the last kings of the Jagiellon dynasty.
