Krakow (Cracow), Poland

 on 


Krakow is yet another city in Eastern Europe which is absolutely flourishing in the post communist era. Tourist from all over the world visit the city wrapped in legend, where time flows differently, and where every moment becomes a moment of history.

For centuries Krakow was the capital of Poland, the seat of kings. There are countless monuments here to remind us of its glory days. If you are a tourist you will be surprised to learn how rich the history of this place is and if you are a Pole you will raise your proud head just a bit higher.
Krakow through the centuries attracted great scholars and artists from the whole world. The city historical significance is the legacy of their talents and imagination.

There is no visit to Krakow without seeing Wawel, the royal castle and the adjoining St. Mary’s Basilica with its naves, each from a different era. In the centre of historical market there are Sukiennice – the historical trade pavilions of the Cloth Hall. You will also find the university, churches, merchant houses, galleries etc.

Krakow is also a city of today with lively atmosphere, lots of young people, great restaurants and beer gardens. We had absolute ball there, even if our historic accommodation there had the squeakiest floor in the world.
