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.

    I'd move there!

    Krakow is a gorgeous medieval town with buckets of charm and just a friendly environment. I went there to do a tour of Aushwitz and was very happy I stayed a extra day to see the city. Everyone I met was very friendly, there's plenty to do including free walking tours, and Polish food is delicious.

    Insider Tip:24 hour perogie shop. Enough said.

    Beautiful 'Old Town'.

    Main square, churches, restaurants, permanent market, and surrounded by leafy parks. A good base loicatiin as well for several day trips. This is a location with more than its fair share of history.

    I love krakow!!!

    Aaaaah I can rave about the food all day! Some parts of the city were gorgeous and it was just nice to walk around and relax outside when the weather was nice and watch some of the street performers dance and what not. People were super friendly and were pretty good about speaking English which was nice too.
