The article deals with the development of Krakow under the rule of the Přemyslicl dynasty, which lasted not quite 16 years. Under Wenceslas II, around 1300, the city was surrounded by a city wall and contained several newly built churches. The early Gothic fragments, documenting the til now unknown stage of the reconstruction of the cathedral at Wawel, which was most likely founded by the Krakow bishop Jan Muskata, deserve particular attention. Had this reconstruction been completed, the Wawel sanctuary would have become the first Polish cathedral with a classic cathedral choir, which could have been modelled on the Cistercian church in Sedlec.
