One of the oldest streets in Kraków, it is a part of the Royal Route, the official historical royal path leading from the gates of the city to Wawel.

The street was developed along an ancient trading route leading south, and it existed well before the Great Charter of Kraków of 1257. It has retained its regular course, breaking the road grid defined around the Main Market Square in the Charter.

Grodzka was a section of the Royal Route, which was for centuries followed on the way to Wawel by kings arriving in Kraków through St Florian’s Gate after victorious battles, bishops about to take up their office, foreign envoys, and the funeral processions of great Poles.
