Ulica Kanonicza

Ulica Kanonicza Review

This street, which leads from almost the center of town to the foot of Wawel Hill, is considered by some the most beautiful street in Europe. Most of the houses here date from the 14th and 15th centuries, although they were "modernized" in Renaissance or later styles. The street was named for the many canons of Wawel Cathedral who have lived here, including Pope John Paul II, who lived in the Chapter House at No. 19 and later in the late-16th-century Dean's House at No. 21.

Muzeum Archidiecezjalne. The Chapter House is now the Muzeum Archidiecezjalne, displaying 13th-century paintings and other art belonging to the archdiocese, not to mention Pope John Paul II's former room. ul. Kanonicza 19-21, 31-002. 012/421–89–63. zł 5. Tues.–Fri. 10–4, Sat.–Sun. 10–3.
