Kraków has got one big advantage for tourists: all of the most important sights are close to each other and you can reach them on foot. You will be fascinated by Rynek Glowny, which is the biggest medieval square in the world. There is also the most beautiful Polish sanctuary Mariacka basilica with two towers of different heights - you can hear music every hour from the higher one.
Where to go in Krakow?
Memorial of the past
When exploring the city, you shouldn`t miss the former Jewish quarter Kazimierz, where you can find whole range of synagogues. There is also a Jewish cemetery or a museum residing in former Schindler`s factory in this quarter – the chilly history of Poland will chase you at every turn.
The city guardian
The city is dominated by the majestic Wawel Castle, which was the seat of Polish kings for more than 500 years. In ancient times, there was a huge cave in which the dragon settled and afflicted local people. Only Prince Krak was able to defeat the dragon - hence the name of Krakow.
Food lovers will definitely please their taste cells in Poland. Local cuisine is very specific and Poles are proud of it. Try local specialties, be it a variety of pasties, sausages, cabbage, mushrooms or fish in countless ways. Definitely don't miss local obwarzanky pretzels that you can get at the kiosks at every corner! Our favorite soups include Žurek - a creamy sour soup with egg and sausage.
For a night out with friends, a network of businesses called Pijalnia Wódki and Piwa is perfect, where you can try unusual "shots" with Polish typical alcohol - Soplica, which they prepare in many ways. Will your favorite be milk, tabasco or vodka? Produced in many varieties, Soplica is also a perfect souvenir from your trip. You can buy flavors like cherry, currant, raspberry, mirabelle or nut (our favorite!).
