But if you are there you might as well take a look. The castle doesn't look like a typical castle bit the squares of Europe are always breathtaking and this one is no exception.

Avoid the city tours and tourists carts!!! Really explore the centre on your own feet to soak in the atmosphere, while feeling the wonderful hospitality of the locals and enjoy the national snack sold at nearly every street corner!!!

Nearly every street has beautiful architecture, cobbled streets, and churches everywhere. All can be explored and visited.

Its small, safe and so-worth it!!!

It is great place where to walk and see the architecture, lots of hidden gems in the small streets. There are possibilities to use the guided tours but we enjoed to walk around

beautiful place, but poorly described; necessarily take a guide to better understand the meaning of most elements

Krakow Historic Center is the center of culture in Poland. Old churches are transformed into music and concert halls at night. outside cafes can be found around the square. Food is good and reasonably priced.
