I went with a friend to Krakow primarily in order to visit Auschwitz (that's another story). However, we found that the city is very well served by little electric buggies which have tourist information on loudspeakers. Our guide also spoke excellent English and she took us all around the historic Jewish Area which was very well preserved and interesting, particularly, of course, the story of the Ghetto and the horrors of the Holocaust. We were very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful square, actually a horse-shoe shape, which is surrounded by large pavement restaurants and cafes. As it was October, there were even blankets waiting on the chairs to cover your legs in the evening. We felt very safe to walk around at night and found all the people charming and helpful. We stayed at the excellent Metropolitan. Couldn't fault it.
