As one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Krakow is a cultural and historical hot spot. Legend has it that Krakow was founded upon the defeat of a dragon, and after a walk around the old buildings and wonderful architecture, you might begin to believe it.
If it’s history that you’re after, then you won’t be disappointed. From medieval to modern, Krakow is heaving with reminders of the past. The Old Town Square, the oldest medieval square in Europe, is a magnificent site surrounded by neoclassical buildings, interspersed with trendy restaurants and cafés. The district of Kazimierz, the old Jewish Quarter, holds the Krakow Ghetto Memorial and the last standing part of the Ghetto Wall.
When you’ve exhausted yourself marvelling at what Krakow has to offer, you can relax in one of the trendy bars or grab some Gelato from the stalls in the market square.
