  • An interesting historical overview of this phenomenal place. It could be perhaps a bit think that descriptions were more legible and full of light. Multimedia presentation cool, but is missing a large part of history. You can to them a bit more anecdotally. For your imagination.

  • Interesting, but in the little Museum to see. Little exhibits, and what is it almost exclusively. However, you can read about the history of the surrounding lands and the Abbey.

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
