The cultural capital of the nation and its historic political capital in the Middle Ages, it’s center is filled with old churches, monuments, the largest European market square and more recently trendy pubs and art galleries. It is one of the major iconic cities not only in the country but in Central Europe as well. It’s city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This medieval city looks like it was taken straight out of a fairy tale, with its bustling market square, spiralling Gothic towers, castles and legends about dragons. Explore the city’s narrow backstreets, hidden courtyards and the network of underground cellars and tunnels. Krakow is known as the cultural capital of Poland through its love of music, poetry and theatre. After years of occupation and struggle, Krakow has emerged a proud city with a strong sense of identity. Yet it has still maintained its artistic and fun-loving soul.
Krakow, Poland’s student city, is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the country. Everyone comes here for the beautiful medieval architecture, castles, good food and cheap booze! This city is beautiful, inexpensive, and is filled with plenty to do. I personally like Warsaw better simply because it’s less of a “tourist scene”, but you can’t deny Krakow is one truly amazing city. No visit to the country would be complete without a visit to this city.
