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…
… 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!
… Krakow was not the best place we visited on our three-week trip. We found the people unfriendly for the most part, and only found one nice looking area of the city.
… 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.
… It's a great place -- very picturesque, good opportunities for day trips to other nearby places and cheap restaurants, accommodation, bars and clubs. Get the Krakow "in your pocket" guide (available at Empik department store on main square). It's updated every two months and is crammed with details on the best bars, clubs, restaurants, day trips, and sightseeing with detailed maps.
… The parties and clubs in Krakow are great. The city has a great atmosphere and very friendly people.
