This place will feel in your memory like an unforgettable experience. The "Castle" and adjacent "Bastion" are some of Krakow's historic structures. You can use public transportation to get here. The history of the place is fascinating . What is now known as the "Bastion" was built by the Polish Art Historian Adolf Szyszko-Bohusz as his own residence in the 1920s. Occupying Nazis called the complex "Schloss Wartenberg" and it housed the headquaters for Governor-General Hans Frank. Currently the castle is part of the Institute of European Studies of the Jagiellonian University and is known for its great restaurant . The view from the castle and restaurant balconies is FANTASTIC. This romantic place is a worthy destination even in the city so rich in attractions like Krakow.

It is good place for a dessert with fantastic view on Krakow Town. The only issue was with coffee latte- we ordered for a coffee with hazelnut syrup but we got the one without it. Waiter forgot about it.

One of the those places i would like to come back more and more. Even though it is not very close to the city center and located in the forest, you should go there if you want to enjoy spectacular view. Some of the people say that staff is not very nice and polite, but i didn't notice that. I didn't have to wait for the menu or for the waiter to come and serve us. No, everything was fast and i have got only good memories from that place :P

check out more on mykhachaturian.weebly.com :) more places to come soon :P

Great place for a summer meal or a drink on the terrace. Possibly the best views in the Krakow area and only a short cheap taxi ride from the city centre. In a few minutes you are transported to the calm of the countryside and away from the bustle of Krakow.

The castle is located on the hill and provides a great view of the Kraków city. It's located more in the outskirts of town so you need to have some kind of transport to get there: like bicycle or car. Taxi is always a good alternative and costs around 4-6EUR from the city center depending on the taxi company. There is a public transport going there as well but it isn't that frequent.
There is university and restaurant located in the palace. The restaurant serves great food so you can enjoy lovely meal and great food at the same time.

The castle is close to Wolski forest and it is located beetwen the airport and Krakow center. There is a nice restaurant with magnificent view for Vistula river.

A short bus ride on the edge of Krakow, worth seeing for the beautiful views. There is a restaurant with seating in a balcony and terrace around the castle where you can have a meal or just tea/coffee/cake and relax looking out over the scenery.

It is a 10 minutes drive from Krakow. Not known much to tourists. Its in the hills and over looks the entire city. It is the best view from the top of the city you can get with the lush green outfields on the other side. They have a restaurant which serves traditional Polish Food, and you can dine on the balcony over looking the city.

Ideal place for a Lunch on a sunny day
