… Visit Krakow in December and you will miss the tourists and get to see the real city. It is beautiful, most days were clear, and you can walk or take the tram everywhere if you are close to Rynek Glowny. Go see the Zoo (outside of town), hike -- there are maps of hiking trails available at any tourist center, go to Wawel Castle and the Krakow National Museum (they have a Rembrandt and a da Vinci as well as tons of other amazing art), and get to know the tiny little shops. If you try to learn any Polish at all -- prosze, dzienkuje, dobranoc, etc. -- people will help you and won't treat you any differently than the locals (for the most part =) ). I cannot recommend Krakow and Poland itself more highly.
… 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!
An interesting city, more than in any other place I've been to are eastern and western European influences exactly in balance here. Particularly peculiar are the one truly tall skyscraper of the city (a greyish brown monster that was donated to the country by Soviet dictator Stalin out of gratitude for Poland's resistance against his Austro-German colleague Hitler), and the "Old City" of
, which actually isn't old at all. It was built after WW II, when the centre of the city had been destroyed almost entirely, and it was decided that constructing an exact copy of the city centre as it was before the war, rather than getting creative and designing something new, was the most honourable thing to do. The result is an "Old City" with a highly surreal atmosphere. It's fake, but then again, it's not. The reconstruction was VERY well done, but when you look carefully, you miss the wear & tear, the colouring of moss and other tiny growths that you will invariably find on buildings that…
… Krakow is a wonderful and magical city, especially at night in the summer. Food is cheap, fresh, and good quality, and people are friendly (except for bank staff). For a solid evening meal, check out Me Kong restaurant just off the north side of the main square.
… Krakow is one of the best cities in the world to party in and see. It has lots to see, lots to do, and lots of nice places to drink and party. Every day of the weekend you can go out and people will be out someplace, you just need to know where to find it. The people are helpful and friendly and I always want to come back.
… You cannot miss going to Krakow. Really amazing city, many things to see and visit. I loved just wandering along the streets. Although if you go in December you may get frozen (believe me). Nightlife is good yeah, but don't go to the typicsl clubs foreigners go, you'd miss the best... Let local people recommend you where to go. Oh, a funny thing, pubs are always hidden at the end of corridors and things like that... pretty curious. Krakow it's defintely worth a visit!
