Did you know that Kraków is over 20,000 years old? While it may not have been built on top of a dragon’s cave, it is one of the oldest cities in Poland and hotspot for travelers. Not only is Kraków inexpensive to explore, there’s so much to do, see and eat, you’ll wonder what stopped you from exploring this wonderful city in the first place! Wander around the historic old town to see Wawel Hill, Royal Castle and Wawel Cathedral, listen to the Hejnał Mariacki, a trumpet signal every hour on the hour from the St Mary’s Church, look for bargains in the city’s top-rated flea markets and make sure to try the best of Polish cuisine with our top picks.
