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, Poland

    Krakow was a very interesting city to visit. We spent one day exploring the city. We did a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter and then explored the beautiful old town on our own. The second day we went to Auschwitz. It is very easy to get there via bus from the station- about an hour and a half each way. It was a very heavy experience but something to be seen if you can.

    Insider Tip:Don't bother getting a Krakow pretzel- they are better in Munich :P

    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
