[closed] Oriental Art

  Wawel 5 ,   Old Town         02 Jul 2020

COVID-19 update: Wawel's Oriental Art exhibit remains closed indefinitely. All other exhibits at Wawel are now open.

This exhibit in the western wing of the castle comprises art from the Near East which was highly prized and fashionable amongst the Polish nobility as it entered the kingdom via military and trade contact with Turkey, Iran, the Caucasus and Crimea. Visitors will see unique collections of Chinese ceramic and Japanese porcelain, but the part of the exhibit that makes it essential are the trophies, banners, weapons and other artefacts captured during King Jan Sobieski III's famous victory over the Turkish army at Vienna in 1683, including Ottoman commander Kara Mustapha Para's sabre.



Open Mon-Sat with 2 entries per day at 11:00 and 14:00; closed from Jan. 27-Feb. 10.

Price/Additional Info

Admission 8/6zł.
