Changes to traffic organisation by Wawel Castle

New traffic prohibition with effect from 15.2.21

From today (Monday, 15/2/21), new traffic restrictions prohibiting the movement of traffic by Wawel Castle come into effect.

Traffic, with a few exceptions, listed below, is now prohibited from driving round the back of the castle, via ul. św. Idziego iPodzamcze, between the area at the foot of Grodzka, round the back of the castle, past Kanonicza towards the river (Powisłe).

There are mixed feelings amongst drivers and residents, with some bemoaning being deprived of this popular transit shortcut, whilst others have stated the restriction is long overdue.
