KrakowBack to : Poland
Krakow can be visited without a watch at your wrist. Every hour, a man plays trumpet notes from the top of the Basilica of St. Mary’s Basilica. It dominates the Market square, the Rynek, where you take the pulse of the city. In summer, the terraces are full and it is from here that people meet during the day or in the evening to go out. Krakow is very cosmopolitan, student and dynamic so well that people almost forget its difficult yet very recent past. During the visit of Krakow, we immediately understand why the city is considered as the cultural capital of the country. Its architectural and cultural heritage is huge: its museums, its castle, its Jewish quarter, but also not far from here the Auschwitz-Birkenau camps, the Wieliczka mines… It will take you more than a weekend to discover Krakow.
