If you‘ve spent a hot morning looking around part of the Krakow Castle Complex(Wawel), as we had, then the idea of a snack and a cool drink is very appealing. We headed to the café on the edge of the main grassy space and happily found a table inside with A/C, but close to a window so we could look out.
For some people a decadent pastry is always a good idea, and that was a good place to indulge in that craving for Nath and Sonya. Rod and I contented ourselves with iced coffee and a maccaron!
To get into the Karakow Castle Complex (Wawel) with its many museums, the castle, and the cathedral, you have to go up the entrance ramp and through the Heraldic Gatenext to the statue of Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a Pole who was a hero of the American Revolution. Here you pay to get into the castle complex (museum entrances are extra).
On the entrance side of the main Wawel castle complex is a large open space. To the left is Wawel Cathedral and to the far right side are WCs, a café, a gift shop and other amenities.
