  • Nice square to enjoy political speaches, food,beverages and just enjoy the moment. There is always some amusement or enetertainment going on. 
  • A great city Especially the old town So romantic and yet good for children Great restaurants and coffees And very historical buildings 
  • I advise to visit the Christmas market in the old city centre. The festive atmosphere, hot snacks and wine (8zlotyh), lots of stalls with crafts: ornaments of amber, skins, Christmas decorations, local cheeses, forged pieces and lots of interesting and beautiful crafts. I think everyone will find something to his liking. But for those who are first in Cracow, I advise proehatsja carriage (150 PLN) and the city will see and feel the spirit of antiquity. Romance)

  • Kraków's old town is really worth, but left by tourists visiting. There it is worth time early to get up and then through the old town to walk, while the others still asleep or just breakfast. Necessarily the much time for planning, it is very much to see.
