… I did visit Krakow in December and I was freezing. However, even so it was a very nice experience. Covered by snow, Krakow looks very beautiful and classy. Wawel Castle was free when I visited there (maybe because it was near Christmas?). The best experience in December is the Christmas Market at Rynek Glowny (Main Market Square). The stands (that are in the shape of wine barrels) sell quite nice mulled wine.
… Krakow itself deserves almost two full days to be enjoyed at its best. The main market square is wonderful, especially magic in the evening. During the day, there's a great market where you can find local cheap handicrafts. In the centre of the square there is also a covered gallery with a large choice of amber jewelry. You should use Krakow as a base to visit Oswiecim (Auschwitz) in one hour and a half of train journey -- one of the top spots of our European trip.
… Krakow is nice but far too touristy, ignore the hoards of tourists and head for Warsaw.
… The parties and clubs in Krakow are great. The city has a great atmosphere and very friendly people.
… Krakow is incredible. The nightlife is magnificent, the people are really nice, and incredibly remains relatively cheap.
… This is a beautiful, small, and easy city -- the best one in Poland! You can easily discover the whole city by walk just in one day. Its cobbled narrow streets are full of life; you can find shops, fast food restaurants, hostels, bars, and clubs every other minute, but in spite of this Krakow hasn't lost its essence nor its charm. You can't miss a visit to Kazmierz, the old Jewish district -- it's a must!
