This palace is really small. First of all, its predecessor was the City Hall of Amsterdam, and then it was transformed into the Royal Palace about two hundred years ago, so it was really the same size as an ordinary City Hall with few rooms. Then it is only open for three months in summer every year, and it is completely closed at other times. It is estimated that the royal family is out for vacation in summer, and it is opened for everyone to see. It seems that the theme of the exhibition here is different every year. For example, the theme of 2016 is portrait painting. From the earliest oil paintings of William Orange period to the current group photos, the exhibition is carried out in chronological order. In short, you can still come and see it here, but don't really expect it as a majestic palace.
Wawel Castle is the palace of the Polish kings in the Middle Ages, and the Royal Cathedral is the place where kings were crowned and buried after their death. The Wawel Royal Castle has a history of more than 1,000 years since it was built. It has witnessed the glorious history of Krakow and even the entire Poland. The most favorite place in Poland is this castle.
Although the castle here does not occupy a large area, you can see the beautiful buildings after entering the castle gate, and you can also stand on a high place around the castle to see the city of Krakow. Basically, more than half a day is enough to visit. It was still snowing here in March and it melted on the ground and it was very cold.
