Royal Castle

Recommended
The castle was built in the Renaissance style, by two Florentine architects, for King Sigismund I. On the ground floor are lovely Gothic rooms reserved for the crown jewels (the Szczerbiec sword takes pride of place). On the first floor, there is a collection of 16C-17C portraits. On the second floor, the luxurious royal apartments are hung with Flemish tapestries, as are the State apartments; don't miss the Hall of Deputies, its ceiling decorated with some 30 carved wooden heads and Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine.
