As the former capital city of Poland, Krakow is making a strong case as the country’s cultural capital.

 Located on the Vistula River, Krakow is centered around the Rynek Główny (market square) which was built in 1257. Today, it contains one of the largest markets in Europe. Here you’ll find the stunning Jewish quarter, along with the historic old town (considered the best in the country). Its central location is near other attractions including Jagiellonian University and Wawel Castle. Don’t let its history and old timey feel fool you though, Krakow is also home to an excellent cafe, bar and restaurant scene, making it one of Poland’s hottest destinations!
