Remarkably unscathed during both World Wars, and extremely pleasing on the eye, it's no wonder that Krakow is Poland's most visited city. The Polish capital until 1596, the cobbled squares, churches and mosques, and gothic architecture are what draw thousands of visitors year after year. Krakow also boasts countless jazz clubs, whetting the appetite of live music lovers from both home and abroad.

    Poland's Old Capital

    Krakow is an amazing city. The well-preserved old town has about a million restaurants ranging from tourist traps to dirt cheap. There are countless attractions to see and you cannot go wrong by heading here.

    Insider Tip:Do not talk to touts, especially the ladies with the pink umbrellas. They are serious trouble. Krakow has several clubs that overcharge drinks. These place are by far in the minority and the ones that do this are notorious so do some research (Hint: Avoid Hard Candy and whatever club the umbrella women advertise).
