City attractive in all seasons
A branch of the National Museum, the Cracow Bishops’ Palace (17th c.) is the most important city sight. Of unique value are painted plafonds and walls. The palace museum also contains a collection of the 19th and 20th century Polish paintings.
The cathedral facing the palace was originally Romanesque, but the present-day building dates from the 17th century.
The nearby village of Tokarnia has a skansen of the regional country architecture with farm buildings, manor house, windmill, granary, chapels and crosses. The city provides many opportunities for active rest and recreation throughout the whole year (trails for biking, hiking and skiing, swimming-pools).
