Krakow has become quite a tourism hotspot in recent years, and it’s about time too. As the country’s royal capital for over 500 years, Poland’s second city holds a wealth of culture and history. While many Polish cities suffered in World War II, Krakow’s buildings were amazingly, and thankfully, left untouched, leaving Krakow to be arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
But while the buildings remain untouched, Krakow is also home to a rich and often disturbing history, as well as the hub of traditional and modern Polish culture. From an old town that buzzes to the sound of jazz and the smell of coffee, to a looming castle – complete with legendary fire breathing-dragon – to a much less visited part of town showing what life was like in communist-era Poland, Krakow is a sensory feast.
If you really want to experience what this city has to offer, here is a list of best things to do in Krakow.
