Wawel Cathedral

5th October 2014

Wawel Cathedral of St. Satnislavus and St. Waclaw was funded by King Wladyslaw Lokietek in the 14 th century and is the third church erected on this spot. The first Cathedral was built in the year 1000. The Cathedral was a place of coronations and burials for the kings of Poland.












Here is a link about Wawel Cathedral in English and possibility of virtual trip http://katedra.nazwa.pl/en/

In my opinion is unique place with rich history.

Enjoy the trip.

  1. Its interior is stunning and of unusual proportions. I wonder how old the tapestries are.

  10. The outside seems to be many styles put together. Very interesting. The inside is beautiful! Certainly fit for a king's coronation or burial.
