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.

    Good place to go

    People usually say that Krakow is a MUST. Of course the city is incredible and from there it is really easy to go to Auschiwitz, but it less than I was expecting. The city has great restaurants and it is really lovely to chill out. If it is the summer don't forget to try an ice-cream, they are spread throughout the city centre and they delicious.

    Insider Tip:Run away from touristic restaurants. Try the Koko Restaurant, great food for excellent prices :)

    One of my favorite cities in the world

    You have to see it to believe it. I only stayed in Krakow for three nights but wish it could have been a month. The city is vibrant and full of life. Explore the Jewish Quarters as well as central old town. See a futbol match if you have time. This is a great city that I would love to live in some day.
