Krakow is a southern Poland city cited  as one of Europe's most beautiful cities and its Old Town was declared the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the world. It has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, economic, cultural and artistic life. All of the main sights are within walking distance of each other. Large market square, colorful streets, historic sites, and abundance of amazing, budget friendly restaurants, Krakow is a favorite stop for many people on their tour through Poland. One of the best things to do while in Krakow is to take a day trip out to Auschwitz-Birkenau which is the largest of the Nazi concentration camps.

Book your next great holiday to Krakow. The sweeping Main Square in the Old Town tells you all you need to know about Kraków’s wealth and authority in Medieval Times, while the royal castle and cathedral on Wawel Hill convey the full might of the Polish monarchy. With tons of prettily decorated churches, ancient buildings, St. Mary’s Tower, Rynek Underground Museum, elegant terraces and winding cobbled streets, Krakow is certainly a sightseer’s paradise, but there’s more to this city than learning and taking snaps. Throughout the city’s old town, visitors can take advantage of a brilliant array of nightlife opportunities, sample Polish cuisine, and enjoy local brews.

MORE ABOUT KRAKOW

Stare Miasto (Old Town)
Stare Miasto (Old Town)

The whole city is encircled by walls, now a belt of parkland, and hoisted above its southernmost point was the mighty royal ensemble on Wawel Hill.
A day in the Old Town will fly by as you drift from churches to atmospheric squares, tempting specialty shops to museums.
The simple act of going for meal or a drink can be a historical journey, descending into cellars with Gothic vaults.
But also pop into a bakery for a ring-shaped obwarzanek krakowski, a slightly sweet bun not too different from a bagel.

Perhaps somewhat stodgy for non-natives, pierogi are one of the mainstays of traditional Polish cuisine. Baked, boiled or fried and usually served smothered with lard, sour cream, butter or onions, pierogi come in a variety of sweet and savoury fillings. of a revival.The classics still prevail, but they can often now be found alongside more contemporary takes on this quintessential Polish dish such as venison with bacon or chicken with Mexican chili beans.

Keeping them open, of course, are the thousands of tourists that flock to Kraków every year. For clubbing, the main hedonist high streets are Floria , ska and Szewska,
