Royal Private Apartments

  Wawel 5 ,   Old Town         19 Apr 2024
The Royal Private Apartments are basically a continuation of the State Rooms tour of the castle's interiors, and equally stunning. Consisting of the royal bedchambers and guest rooms, these rooms on the first floor reveal how the royals lived and arranged their private lives. Packed with delightful Gothic and Renaissance details, the Royal Private Apartments include the wonderful Guest Bedroom, complete with original Renaissance larch wood ceiling, and the charmingly-named, but mysterious 'Hen’s Foot' - two small rooms inside the 14th-century Belvedere Tower, which offer great views of Kraków's Old Town, but whose original function is unknown.
