Wawel Dragon & Dragon’s Den

Dragon’s Den (Polish: Smocza Jama) was formed about 25 million years ago. It is a spectacular limestone formation located on Wawel Hill filled with caves, chambers and passages. The legend says, it is a place where used to live the Wawel Dragon (or Smok Wawelski). You will descend to the Dragon’s Den at the foot of the Thieve’s Tower (inside the castle courtyard) by going down a staircase. The cave is 270 meters long, of which only 81 meters (265 ft) are open to the public. You will walk through the caves and exit it through a pointed arch portal right to the Vistula Boulevard where you will find a sculpture of the Wawel Dragon created by Bronisław Chromy in 1972. Once you are there, wait a moment and look into the dragon’s mouth. The dragon lets out a flame of fire every few minutes and is a great photo opportunity.
