Krakow Pocket Guide

Images Of Krakow

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.

    Amazing city

    Krakow has been one of my favourite places so far. It's a very pretty city and easy to walk around. Pretty good night life, too. Not a whole lot to do so you probably couldn't stay here too long, but it's definitely worth a visit. Make sure you set aside a day to go to Auschwitz while there, and take a wander down to the river to see the dragon breathe fire!

    Nice city and very polite people

    Tough winter but a very nice stay where you can see the main points just walking. Good pubs and clubs with good values.

    Review of Krakow

    The city center is very pretty and nice for walking, there are lots of interesting building facades to look at all throughout the city. People were very nice, and there are lots of tourists so it is also very lively at night.

    Insider Tip:Book concentration camp tickets way ahead if you want a guide (or come in early in the day, it closes relatively early.)

    Loved it!

    I didn't really know what to expect about Krakow since I never really heard of it. I stayed in the historic centre, really nice place with a big square in the middle, with a lot of ambiance, restaurants and activities!

    Love Krakow

    I really liked the city, the atmosphere, the small streets, the pubs and the food, not to mention that is very affordable which in my case makes a huge difference. So 5 stars plan to come back.

    Insider Tip:You have to eat all those Zapiekanka (toasted bread with different toopings) in plac nowy on the jewish distric, its also a very nice place to go out at night with cool little cafes and bars.
