Wawel, Salwator, and Dębniki Travel Guide

Wawel, Salwator, and Dębniki

The Wawel Hill—with the Royal Castle and cathedral—is perched between the south end of the Planty Ring and the Vistula River, which takes a sweeping turn in this very spot. Across the river, to the southwest, is a residential district of Dębniki, now much enlivened by the ICE conference and entertainment center, a venue for all kinds of concerts and performances. Opposite Dębniki and directly west of Wawel is another residential and historical district of Salwator—gateway to the pictursque Kościuszko Mount.
