 Galleria shopping mall

Krakow is the second largest city in Poland and a magnet for tourists and travelers. The city is made up of 18 districts, with “District I Stare Miasto“ (including the Old Town) in the very center. Central Krakow is extremely tourism focused, with little else going on. If you want a taste of the rest of life in urban Poland, head out of the center and visit areas around the city as its neighborhoods are diverse. To see the work of communist designers visit Nowa Huta for a large scale planned neighborhood. For greenery visit Zwierzyniec, on the west side, and stroll through the lush forest and hills.

Most Krakow hostels are located in the Old-Town, many near the Main Market Square. This area is great for seeing the central tourist attractions and just a short walk from the main train station (Krakow PKP - the bus station is right behind it as well). It's also easy to get here from the airport via local train. Be careful if taking up anyone offering hostel beds at the station, as always with strangers you run the risk of getting ripped off, or they may try and convince you that your hostel is now closed (which we assure you, it most likely isn't). There are also hostels in Krakow outside of the center, for instance in Podgórze, the area of the World War II Jewish ghetto. These tend to be more low key, though it's best to check reviews and choose a place according to your party spirit or desire to sleep.
