Museum Gallery of the 19th Century Polish Art, Krakow

4.5
#6 of 41 in Museums in Krakow
Hidden out of sight underneath the market square, Museum Gallery of the 19th Century Polish Art traces the history of the city via archaeological exhibits. Passageways through excavated structures help to demonstrate how people lived and what trade and industry were like in Krakow generations ago. Although it showcases centuries-old artifacts, the museum is quite modern in design and uses videos and interactive displays. Because the entrance can be hard to find, seek out the visitor center at Cloth Hall on the square and inquire there about how to access the museum.

    In three days you can visit to get an overall idea, even managing to go to Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka salt mine. Essential to visit the old Center, through the Green boundary wall around the historic town, the Wawel castle complex and the Jewish quarter.

    We use the gallery as additional rooms, in which we are once a week, to poprzebywać with images. Every time something else will be made in memory, it asks to stand in front of you for longer. Take advantage of Sunday, free visit and spend as much time as we are able to soak up the high art. Exhibitions are a beautifully orchestrated, by the Gallery to flows in satisfaction. When drug overdose, let us remember where we finished and let's go to another time. And now let's go to the terrace of the cloth Hall for coffee with ice cream:)

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.
