Amazing atmosphere! Super relaxing and affordable. Easy to get around, uber is quite cheap as well, not to mention the bus and metro (compared to UK). Always felt safe even at night. Definitely coming back!

I didn't know what to expect when I went to Krakow but my first day there walking around I was pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful old city with a rich history and so much more! Beautiful people, great food and so much culture to soak up it will leave you full and pleased!! It is a short bus ride to Auschwitz also and I highly recommend the trip.

Fantastic food. I loved the ambient here. I made friends with some students that helped me practice my Russian. PolskiBus never came to pick me up so all of us had to take the train. Met a hype marathon runner there.
