Krakow is definitely a place to see in Poland. It is said, that if it had not been for the World War II or the socialist era until 1989, Krakow would be more popular than Prague at the moment.
Krakow is the second biggest city in Poland with population exceeding 750,000. It is the capital of Malopolska Region, and for many years in the past it had also been the capital of Poland.
Krakow is situated in the southern part of the country and it is well connected with the rest of it by motorways. It also has good connection with Europe thanks to the modern Balice airport offering regular flights to London, Manachester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh and many more.
Krakow is the most interesting and one of the most often visited cities in Poland by both, Polish and foreign tourists. It became a very popular place among the British people for bachelor and hen nights.
All because of the attractiveness of the city and fantastic night life with plenty pubs, bars restaurants and unique cultural spirit of the city.
So why Krakow?
Krakow's Old Town market square is a one of a kind in Poland, and probably Europe as well. World known Sukiennice (old Cloth Hall) and Mariacki Church are located there.
Wawel Castle used to be Polish Kings residence. It is surrounded by a network of streets and many legends.
Beautiful Royal Way of St. Florian's Gate to the Wawel charms with architecture and monuments. From the top of Kosciuszko's mound you can admire a magnificent view of the city. But Krakow is not only a city of museums and monuments. It is great fun as well.
The attractions of Krakow are numerous restaurants, cafes, pubs and nightclubs. The selection is huge and has something for everyone.
The city also attracts many cultural events and festivals as well as sport competitions. Wisla Krakow is one of the major teams in Poland, Cracovia Krakow is one of the oldest.
Krakow had not been the host city for Euro 2012, although there are two modern stadiums. However it was chosen by the biggest number of national teams for the accommodation during the tournament. That also confirms its uniqueness.
