Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wawel Hill (Polish: Wawel, IPA: [ˈvavɛl]) is the name of a Jurassic limestone outcrop formed about 150 million years ago. It is situated on the left bank of the Vistula River in Kraków, Poland, at an altitude of 228 metres above the sea level. Over the millennia, the hill provided a safe haven for people who settled there since the Paleolithic Age. It is assumed that the Western Slavic tribe of Lechitians (Poles) started living on the Wawel Hill as early as the 7th century.Wawel is a symbolic place of great significance for all Polish people. The Royal Castle and the Cathedral are situated on the Hill. Polish Royalty and many distinguished Poles are interred in the Basilica. Royal coronations have taken place there since 1320.
