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.

Krakow City Reviews

    The most romantic town I've ever been

    I wasn't sure what to expect from Krakow and I was so surprised to see is actually a magical place. I'd recommend it to any person. The food is cheap, you can walk everywhere since is a small town. Every corner of it is perfectly designed to make you feel you're in a doll house. All the stores and restaurants have their own style and the atmosphere is pretty magic.

    Insider Tip:You should get some really cheap pierogi at "U Babci Maliny". A lot of locals eat there, the food is cheap, the place has a vintage look and there's a sweet old man playing the piano beatifuly.

    Amazing city

    The city is very good, it is really small so you can get around easily. A lot of young people too, the bars were always full.

    krakow, Poland

    The general atmosphere of the city felt like it was haunted by troubles, creating a low mood amongst the culture.

    Insider Tip:make sure you validate bus tickets in the machines once bought to avoid being fined on the spot.

    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.
