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.

    Krakow is amazing

    Krakow is extremely inexpensive and full of our world history. A must see when you are traveling eastern Europe! I survived very well off 180$ canadian here for 3 nights and 3 days, and you could do it for cheaper if you had to!

    don't miss this city

    it was snowing so all the places are white, I really enjoyed there I just have 2 days in Krakow but If I have chance to visit Europe again I'll definitely visit to this place

    Insider Tip:If you want to join the tour (salt mine, auschuwits), use the tour inside the city center not from hostel. it's cheaper. and if you want to visit auschuwits by yourself. you should make a reservation online in advance. not only the salt mine, auschwits but also the center in Krakow is really nice don't miss it

    Great town, beautiful historic city, a great atmosphere ... full of unusual places to discover !! The most dynamic and most nice neighborhood to go out in the afternoon or at night is Kazimierz! (full of bars, restaurants, nice places ...). The historic center also full of great places to discover. The people are very friendly. A great week in Krakow !!

    Krakow one city full of history

    Well, Krakow is a city with a lot of history, every place you look! If you go there you must to go to Auschwitz and Wieliczka Salt Mine.

    Insider Tip:Don't buy the tickets to Auschwitz at the Hostel you can find cheaper in the Tourist Information Centre or you can go by you own and do the tour by yourself. Always get a pierogi to eat at night!
