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.

    Beautiful old city

    This city has a lot of character and history to it. The city is quite cheap and they offer a lot of different sught seeing tours. We did a free walking one which was great.

    Insider Tip:Do a free walking tour. We also did the hop on hop off tour that took us to the Krakow Mound which offers great views of the city. Also check out the Salt Mine. Amazing!

    Friendly Historic City

    Krakow is a lovely place to visit - the city has a very friendly feel to it. Whether you stay in the touristy areas or venture a little outside, people are nice and there are so many things to see. Walking the length of the touristy part of the city only takes about 30 minutes, so it is very easy to get around. The Main Market Square is a great place to grab something to eat and watch people, learn some Polish history, or do some shopping.

    Insider Tip:If you have the time, go on one of the free walking tours that start at St. Mary's every day. They're a great way to get a feel of the city layout and to figure out which sights you want to spend time at.

    Jazz Favourite

    My favorite would be the Jazz clubs. Took a bicycle tour to the Abbey through the countryside and the river and forest. Great views. Went on the Salt Mine tour and the Auschwitz. Salt Mine tour I could do without.

    Insider Tip:Good place to eat - Raspberry Grandmothers. Good Jazz - Jazz Club U Muniaka Forget about tours to the salt mine, go there on your own.

    Insider Tip:Take a walk west of Wawel castle through the amazing forest up to one of Krakow's 4 mounds, a very nice walk and amazing views! If you have time keep venturing west!
