Krakow Sightseeing – What else do visitors like to see?
It’s a cliche but it’s absolutely true – Krakow has an amazing number of sites, activities and experiences for visitors of every kind. The Old Town, Kazimierz, Nowa Huta (the socialist- realist “ideal city” and its exceptionally interesting history for visitors from the West), the area of the ghetto from the war and Oscar Schindler’s factory, the amazing Underground Museum in the Main Square and a long list of other locations await you in Krakow. You can also get off the beaten path and see the quiter but still fascinating side of the city in places like Salvator and Old Podgorze, visit the three hill fortresses around the city or one of the impressive monasteries. You will run out of time before you run out of choices!
When it’s time to take a break from moving around the city, another experience begins in Krakow’s incredible variety of cafes and restaurants. This is when you will truly slip in to the atmosphere that defines this fantastic city. Spend the night in the hotel in the center of town so you can go for a morning run in the park that surrounds the Old Town, smell the freshly baked bread as the sun rises and the city comes to life and spend a lazy morning over a cup of something hot while you gaze out the window.
