Reviews of Krakow

An old world city brimming with history and fantastic architecture, also just a stones throw away from some WW2 concentration camps, a real history buffs dream

Brilliant city to go to and Poland has great heritage and culture, however, Krakóe has became a lot more popular lately which dampens and hides the cultural heritage and history a bit. The buildings are astonishing and Polish culture is amazing; Kraków has a wide and embedded history and is near to Oświeciem (Auschwitz). Worth to go Kraków for a taste of Poland before going to other Polish cities.
