Why Visit Poland's Former Royal Capital

There are as many churches and museums in Krakow as there are craters on the moon. The mystical stories of the Wawel Dragon fit perfectly with the atmosphere.

Besides the city's priceless historical monuments of culture and art, unforgettable atmosphere, Krakow is rich in entertainment and leisure: there are many theaters, cabarets, clubs, cafes, bars, wine cellars and restaurants having something to offer for everyone.

We suggest considering the following Krakow tour to highlight your exploration of the city. Enter the Old Town through the St. Florian's Gate, walk Florianska Street to the main square, Rynek Glowny, to sip coffee, stop by a souvenir shop or see the Krakow Historical Museum. Continue down Grodzka to the Wawel Castle, an impeccable fortification perched on a hill overlooking and colorful buildings of the Old Town and an absolute "must" of any Krakow itinerary.

Continue south past Wawel Castle to where the Vistula River winds lazily through the middle of town making for a tranquil place to rest. Just before the river is the quaint Kazimierz Jewish district where you'll find the synagogue of Remuh a Jewish cemetery, and many shops.

Don't miss the famous 656 sq. ft. Market Square in the very middle of Krakow's Old Town. It is included on the UNESCO list of the World Heritage Sites and is the largest medieval town square in Europe. In the past, it was a marketplace where numerous official events were held. St. Mary's Cathedral overlooks the square as well as the Town Hall and the Cloth Hall. Explore the cultural capital of Poland and one of the most attractive spots on the tourist map of Europe!
