Krakow ©
One of Poland's oldest cities, Krakow sits at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains, its historical town center nestled on the left bank of the Vistula River.
Venture out of the city with trips to Church of St. Michael the Archangel (in Katowice) and Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau (in Oswiecim). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Wieliczka Salt Mine, get a taste of the local shopping with Sukiennice (Cloth Hall), admire the striking features of St. Mary's Basilica, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
