I didn't know what to expect when I went to Krakow but my first day there walking around I was pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful old city with a rich history and so much more! Beautiful people, great food and so much culture to soak up it will leave you full and pleased!! It is a short bus ride to Auschwitz also and I highly recommend the trip.
Fantastic food. I loved the ambient here. I made friends with some students that helped me practice my Russian. PolskiBus never came to pick me up so all of us had to take the train. Met a hype marathon runner there.
One of the best cities in all of Poland with tremendous medieval history. It’s also very walkable and has one of the largest public squares in all of Europe.
Krakow is a must see city in Poland. Its more like a medieval town with well kept buildings, fortunately was not destroyed in the World War II. You just get a feeling that you were transported back to the past when you were walking around the old town square.
