  • Try to be there at full hour and the best at noon as you can enjoy chime clock with small moving statues  more »
  • Definitely in the top 3 things to do/visit in Krakow. We also had the good fortune to visit with a guide who speak Italian funny but absolutely informative. Highly recommended.

  • It is rather intimate Museum with an interesting, worth seeing exhibition. I encourage you to see. At the same time I understand that once you have seen 6 churches, 2 other museums and to the Wawel Castle-it is your cognitive perception is tight (as natural) przytępiona. That's why I strongly recommend the minimum plan. A must-see is surrounded by a cloister courtyard of the Collegium Maius. Entrance is free, and seeing this Renaissance gems worth all the money.

  • The famous university, there Nicolaus Copernicus worked
  • Interesting place to take a tour with a lot of history.
  • It's amazing place at the center of City. There are no much of tourists here, but you must to go here to catch noon (when clocks play classical music). Also please look into university garden near by.
  • worth walking into the building to see the square. Pope John Paul the Second attended here, as well as Copernicus. Polands oldest university.
