… 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!
This is not so nice as other Polish cities but
's full of life and it has a hyperactive cultural scene. I love its bars and clubs, all of them unique and brimming with personality. The city also has an excellent public transportation network. Go and enjoy Warsaw's nightlife and don't forget to eat lunch in one of its "bar mleczny" (milk bars)!
… 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.
You will never forget your trip to
… If you visit Krakow for the first time you will certainly want to return. The people are among the friendliest anywhere in the world and in winter, when it snows, it's like being in a fairytale.
… Don't miss the Saturday night parties in the center of Krakow!
