The ancient royal capital and intellectual epicenter of Poland, Krakow ranks with Prague and Vienna as one of the architectural gems of central Europe. Chock-full of history and Old Town charm & totally undamaged by World War II (in fact it has been listed by UNESCO as one of the world’s 12 most important historic sites), Krakow is a beautiful city, ideal for a short break.

Krakow sits on the banks of the Vistula River and is a feast of medieval towers, cathedrals and castles; a warren of beautiful cobbled streets; a maze of the pretty, the intricate and the ancient.

Until WW II this was one of the great Jewish centres in Europe, a past whose fabric remains clear in the old ghetto area of Kazimierz, and whose culmination is starkly enshrined at the death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, some 70km west of Krakow.

Kazmirez is the old Jewish quarter of the city. It is fast becoming the trendy part of town and all nightlife starts in the New Square – there are about 6 or 8 bars around the New Square and you go in, get your booze and hang out on the benches in the New Square.

Krakow Must Sees: Landmark:  Vavel Castle Culture: Auswitch Concentration Camp Shopping: Galeria Kazimierz.
