Krakow

[closed] Crown Treasury & Armoury

  Wawel 5 ,   Old Town         23 Jan 2019

*This exhibit is closed for maintenance until April 14, 2019.
Containing Poland’s very own equivalent of the Crown Jewels among its many wonders, Wawel's Crown Treasury & Armoury provides a delightful excursion into the world of the sumptuous, extravagant and brutally violent. To the left, the Crown Treasury features several glass cases of golden and bejewelled goblets, platters, coins and other marvels, of which Szczerbiec - the country’s original coronation sword - is the ultimate highlight. To the right the Armoury contains a wealth of weaponry including some exceedingly swanky crossbows and a frightening array of spiky pikes, while the cellar holds a collection of cannons and replicas of the banners captured at the Battle of Grunwald. Be aware that due to conservation works, the number of tickets for sale is limited.
