Make sure you pay for the audio tour which is probably the clearest description of where to go and what to look out for. Well worth the 7 Pln extra.

We went to Krakow in October and it was a wonderful view from our hostel to see such a beautiful place as the Cathedral. It's a absolutely good place to visit.

Castle was within walking distance from the main square. You can book different levels of tours. Give yourself at least a half day to walk round the castle. There is also a tea room and gift shop.
