Plenty of places to sit and watch the world and its people go by in this melting pot of culture, food and music.

My first visit to Krakow and I found the main square beautiful. A lovely spot to just relax but also a plentiful supply of restaurants. Easy to expect that because of where they are that these would be expensive but from what I saw not much different to those a bit off the main square. You also get to hear the bugler play every hour after the clock strikes.

So much to see and do. Look out for great Amber products at very good prices and Polish Perrogie for lunch is a must do.

Its beauty is out of expectation. You cannot help but spend 1 whole day here. You may enjoy the 2-hourly clock alarm from St Mary's Church, imagine you trade in the Cloth Hall, or play with the lazy lion statues in front of the Town Hall Tower. The evening view is especially spectacular.
